We submitted an application for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory M37 program. We were very hopeful that our application might be funded, but alas, no. 

The program had some great opportunities. You are welcome to review our application!

We were told that our application was clever, but we did not have the political clout within the political circles to win favor. 

Dear applicant,
Thank you for your application to M37. Unfortunately, the urgency and time constraints of the pilot phase of this program limit the number or finalists we are able to consider and we will not be able to invite you to the Lab for an on-site interview. 

The caliber of our applicant pool made this a very difficult decision.  We hope that this will not discourage you from continuing to drive toward high-impact technology solutions to our pressing energy problems, and wish you the best of luck in your efforts.

The M37 Team
