Higher Education Grants or Gifts of Interest to African Americans

Here is this week’s news of grants or gifts to historically Black colleges and universities or for programs of particular interest to African Americans in higher education.

Historically Black South Carolina State University has been awarded a $404,992 grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) to support the implementation of technical assistance workshops for faculty at HBCUS so they can be more competitive when seeking federal research and development grants. The grant will fund the creation of two regional technical assistance workshops, two research exchange conferences, and a week-long training institute for HBCU faculty. Dr. Elbert Malone, associate provost of sponsored programs and research at South Carolina State is the principal investigator for the project.

The Center for Inclusive Education at Stony Brook University in New York has received a $1.7 million grant from the National Science Foundation to lead an alliance between Stony Brook, Farmingdale State College, and Suffolk County Community College to provide career development for historically underrepresented minority doctoral degree students in STEM fields. The goal is to successfully transition these students into faculty positions at predominately undergraduate institutions. The program involves developing, implementing, studying, institutionalizing, evaluating and disseminating an educational and training model to achieve this goal.
