HBCU Excellence in Research Q&A Sessions

Are you an investigator at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU)?

Are you curious which programs at NSF support research like yours?

Are you interested in applying to or learning more about the HBCU-EiR program?

Program Officers representing each division in BIO will be hosting two online informational sessions to help answer any questions you may have. Join us to learn more about the NSF HBCU-EiR program, gain an understanding of where your research fits in at NSF, and have one-on-one conversations with Program Officers about your research goals. Register for one of the two sessions below:

July 1st from 1-2pm EST


or July 14th from 3-4pm EST


“The Historically Black Colleges and Universities – Excellence in Research (HBCU-EiR) program was established in response to direction provided in the Senate Commerce and Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee Report (Senate Report 115-139), and is built on prior and continuing efforts by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to strengthen research capacity at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The program aims to establish stronger connections between researchers at HBCUs and NSF’s research programs.”
