Thomas More College

The Duke Energy Foundation is handing out grants totaling $500,000 to fund water quality research and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education at the University of Cincinnati and Thomas More College.

Each school is getting $250,000.

UC plans to use the money to complete a groundwater quality monitoring station and create a summer environmental research training program for K-12 science teachers.


More than 780 million people worldwide lack access to clean drinking water and 2.6 billion don't have access to proper sanitation. For local water technology companies those numbers are a call to action and a major business opportunity.
