From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Sun Grant Association is a group of five U.S. universities that serve as regional centers of the Sun Grant Initiative, which was established by the U.S. Congress in the Sun Grant Research Initiative Act of 2003 for the purposes of researching and developing sustainable and environmentally-friendly bio-based energy alternatives. The Department of Transportation, Department of Energy, and the Department of Agriculture are partners in the initiative. The five centers were each established to serve a different geographic region of the United States.
