Announcing the Inaugural Cohort of Innovation in Buildings (IBUILD) Graduate Research Fellows

The US Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Office (BTO) is excited to introduce the inaugural cohort of Innovation in Buildings (IBUILD) Graduate Research Fellows.

The IBUILD Fellowship Program was launched in September 2020 with the goal of strengthening the pool of well-trained, diverse graduate student scholars who are equipped for research-intensive careers in fields supporting the larger mission of building energy efficiency. IBUILD Fellows receive financial support to conduct innovative research at their home institution in an area with demonstrated relevance to building energy efficiency. The fellowship also provides opportunities for professional development outside the home institution, including mentoring and internships at national labs and networking with BTO and other IBUILD Fellows.

The 2021 IBUILD Fellowship class received 85 excellent applications. From these, the IBUILD Fellowship program management team selected a cohort of nine, with five additional applicants receiving honorable mention.

The IBUILD team and BTO would like to congratulate the incoming cohort and to thank all of the applicants for creating such a high-quality pool and so many difficult choices.
