DOE seeks to understand the barriers to entry to DOE funding opportunities and other forms of assistance for first-time applicants, individuals from groups historically underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)3, individuals from underserved communities, organizations that support underserved communities, such as, minority serving institutions (MSI’s) or that are located in underserved communities, as well as understanding programmatic, operational, or other internal measures that DOE can implement to remove these barriers.
This survey is designed to collect responses to submit to a Request for Information (RFI) issued by the U.S. Department of Energy. Responses to DOE are requested by Friday, August 6, 2021 at 5 p.m. ET. Responses received after this date will be reviewed as time permits.
