ULM receives EPA Environmental Education Grant


ULM Professor Joydeep Bhattacharjee, Ph.D., received an EPA-Environmental Education Grant, which includes working with local high school teachers and students.

University of Louisiana Monroe Professor of Biology Joydeep Bhattacharjee, Ph.D., has been awarded an EPA – Environmental Education Grant. The $133,720 grant will address local environmental issues through educational activities and stewardship using action-oriented research.  

It’s been more than 15 years since a ULM faculty member received an EPA-EE grant.

“Of the three awards out of 300 applicants this year in EPA Region 6, ULM was the only educational institution that received the grant, the other two being not-profit organizations. I am humbled by this award,” said Bhattacharjee, of the College of Arts, Education, and Sciences.

EPA Region 6 consists of Louisiana, Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
