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 Delaware State University received a $750,739 grant from the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceutical. The grant will fund the establishment of the Biopharmaceutical Workforce Outreach, Research, Diversity, and Education (WORDE) Institute at the university. The grant will fund the purchase of technology and equipment that will establish the biopharmaceutical capabilities at the university. It will also cover the cost of faculty professional development and the design of curriculum based on current industry workforce needs. The grant program will be under the direction of LaTia Scott, an associate professor of biological sciences, and Derrick Scott, an assistant professor of biological sciences, at the university.

California State University, San Bernardino received a three-year, $1 million grant from the California Office of Planning and Research to increase diversity in chemistry. With over 100,000 students taking chemistry courses in California annually, the study is designed to directly improve outcomes for women and other underrepresented student populations pursuing STEM education by using culturally-responsive, technology-enabled learning to address factors known to disproportionately impact historically marginalized groups in STEM.
