Program Officers representing each division in BIO hosted two online informational sessions on July 1st and July 14th to help answer questions about the Historically Black Colleges and Universities – Excellence in Research (HBCU- EiR) program.
“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.”
For those who were unable to attend, we’ve provided the PowerPoint slides here.
Remember the Letter of Intent is due July 23rd, 2020 and if you have any questions there’s still time to reach out to any of the Program Officers listed on the informational slides above.
