The funds are to provide resources to allow for training and research fellowships relating to environmental issues. No matching funds are required. Grant recipients and sub-recipients are encouraged to adopt and enforce policies that ban text messaging while driving company-owned or -rented vehicles or government-owned vehicles, or while driving privately-owned vehicles when on official government business or when performing any work for or on behalf of the government. Grant recipients and sub-recipients are encouraged to conduct initiatives of the type described in section 3(a) of the Federal Leadership on Reducing Text Messaging While Driving Executive Order that was signed on October 1, 2009.

Students are required to submit an official transcript from each 2- or 4-year college or university, or distance learning institution attended. A student must submit verification of acceptance and/or enrollment in a graduate or Ph.D. program if the applicant is a graduating senior. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-87.

The evaluation and selection criteria for competitive awards under this CFDA description will be described in the competitive announcement. Applicants must meet all of the basic eligibility requirements. Eligible applications then will be reviewed by panels comprised of EPA staff members. Applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria: 1) relevancy of classroom experience of the student as it relates to the EPA research project, 2) the student's understanding of the proposed EPA research project subject matter, 3) relevancy of work experience of the student (whether volunteer activities, internships, or paid jobs) as it relates to the EPA research project, 4) relevancy of the student's academic studies as it relates to the EPA research project, 5) leadership skills, written communication skills, and demonstrated success at working well in an office, laboratory, or field environment, as appropriate to the project, and 6) potential for success, as reflected by academic records, letters of reference, and other relevant information. Applications that are scored highly by the panels of reviewers are sent to NNEMS staff and EPA project officers for selection consideration.
