NSF Funding for Historically Black Colleges & Universities: Targeted Infusion Projects

Jun 22, 2020 at 07:00 am by katecaccavaio

Grant Opportunity: The Historically Black Colleges & Universities Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP) program was established in 2000 to broaden the diversity of the STEM workforce in the US. Funding for STEM education is available for Targeted Infusion Projects to improve the quality of and enhance undergraduate STEM education at HBCUs. NSF encourages proposals that prepare future K-12 STEM educators through innovations in education.

Other possible proposals can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Projects developing faculty expertise and research
  • Projects enhancing existing degree programs establish new degree programs or concentrations, secure specialized accreditation or certification, or infuse STEM programs with disciplinary field advances
  • Projects could enhance academic infrastructure by updating curricula, modernizing laboratory research equipment, or improving the computational network array supporting research and education

Eligible schools that currently have a five-year Implementation Project will need to explain how the Targeted Infusion Project differs from the Implementation Project activities and how the HBCU-UP funded projects will be leveraged, integrated, or synergized to produce greater outcomes that could not be achieved separately.

Eligibility: Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) that are accredited and offer undergraduate educational degree programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)

Grant Amount: up to $400,000

Grant Period: Projects average 2-3 years

Important Dates: 

  • Letter of Intent Deadline: Tuesday, July 28, 2020. Letters of intent are required.
  • Application Deadline: Tuesday, October 6, 2020
