      The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is seeking proposals from companies for a $9500 grant to support an intern undertaking a green chemistry and engineering-related project in summer 2017.

       

      While eligible companies may be headquartered outside the state, the work much take place in Minnesota.  One grant of up to $9500 will be awarded.

       

      This is the second year the MPCA has been able to offer this grant.  See https://www.pca.state.mn.us/waste/grant-connect-ecology for a summary of this past summer's intern project.

       

      With the help of partners around the U.S., MPCA will recruit recent college grads with science, technology, engineering or math backgrounds for the successful company to interview in early 2017.

       

      More information and application materials are available on this MPCA web page: https://www.pca.state.mn.us/waste/green-and-safer-product-chemistry-grants.

       

      Questions may only be addressed to mailto:p2.pca@state.mn.us; answers will be posted on the web page above.

       

      The deadline for companies to apply is January 13, 2017, at 2:00 Central time.
