UT awarded 2 $3M grants for graduate research

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two University of Tennessee research groups have won $3 million National Science Foundation grants to create new graduate science research and education programs.

The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeships are intended to draw the nation's brightest graduate students to the Knoxville campus.

Each grant lasts five years and will support about 15 graduate students with a stipend and tuition waiver and provide support for their research.

One grant will bring together researchers from UT-Knoxville's colleges of Arts and Sciences and Engineering and will focus on the creation of sustainable energy and the challenges of hydrogen as an energy source.

The second grant brings together researchers from four different colleges and researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
