Due to the country’s increasing need for talent in the area of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the Historically Black Colleges and Universities – Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP) has been designed to encourage underrepresented minorities to pursue careers in these areas.
HBCUs have awarded a large amount of degrees in the STEM fields at the undergradaute level, as well as the doctorate level. The HBCU-UP has committed to enhancing the quality and value of STEM education at HBCUs across the country. HBCU-UP provides awards to develop, implement, and study evidence-based innovative models and approaches for improving the preparation and success of HBCU undergraduate students.
Support is available for the following projects:
- Targeted Infusion Projects
