Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology HBCU Research Infrastructure for Science and Engineering (CREST HCU RISE)


National Science Foundation


The mission of the HBCU-RISE grant, which is a component of NSF's CREST program is to “support efforts to strengthen the science and engineering research and education capacity at institutions with strong track records of producing STEM graduates from populations that have been underrepresented in their participation in STEM fields of study: women, Blacks and African Americans, Hispanic or Latino Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians, Native Pacific Islanders, veterans, and persons with disabilities."


Teams are required to work with a project evaluator/evaluation team that "will gauge the accomplishment of project goals and the impacts of the project." In support of the importance of the evaluation to the project, NSF indicates that project teams' budgets should include adequate resources to support the evaluation.


Due Date: Proposals are due on December 1, 2023.
