About EPA

The mission of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is to protect human health and to safeguard the natural environment - air, water, and land - upon which life depends. The agency employs scientists to conduct environmental research in-house, but it also makes awards to external researchers. The agency's National Center for Environmental Research is the source of external grant funding. Grants are awarded in the areas of exposure, effects, risk assessment, and risk management. Grants are also awarded to small businesses through a Small Business Innovative Research Program, and the agency funds undergraduate and graduate student fellowships. The center administers the Science to Achieve Results (STAR) funding program, which spans the full range of EPA priority topics.
