Rosales, along with a team of researchers that he led, received a total award amount of $791, 531. Through this grant, Rosales and his team will work to create programs that support energy reduction.

The group will apply their research and findings to these geographical areas. “This is a great opportunity for FIU to give something back to Latin America,” said Rosales. “Some of our [very own] professors and students come from Latin America.” Rosales also stated how rewarding it is to contribute to the well-being of the region.
