Гранты от Environmental Research and Education Foundation

The Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF) offers research grants on the management of solid wastes. Topics include waste minimization; recycling; waste conversion to energy, biofuels, chemicals, and other products; waste diversion to other uses; and landfills. There are no geographical restrictions on institutions that can apply. Previously awarded grants have ranged from US$15 thousand to over US$500 thousand, normally for projects of about two years. It should be noted that proposed research in excess of $300,000 or longer than 3 years should contain sufficient details that justify the need for the higher than average amount requested and longer project duration. Submission Criteria

Non-U.S. Institutions
There are no restrictions in regards to geographic location.  Any U.S. or non-U.S. institutions are eligible to apply.

Non-Academic Institutions
Proposals will be accepted from non-academic institutions provided the principal investigators are qualified to conduct the research.

Multiple Institutions
Submissions may include multiple institutions.

Who Can Serve as a Principal Investigator
Principal investigators (PI) must be qualified to do the work proposed and should be experts in the subject matter referenced in the pre-proposal/proposal.  Typically this would include full-time faculty at academic institutions, post-doctoral employees, and principals or senior personnel at non-academic institutions.  Graduate students are not eligible to be principal investigators.  However, graduate students are encouraged to consider applying to EREF’s scholarship program (see the EREF website for details).

The deadlines for pre-proposals are 06 January and 01 June of each year. https://erefdn.org/research-grants-projects/how-to-apply-for-grant/
