Grants to USA IHEs for instrumentation and equipment to enhance minority participation in STEM research. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to increase the number of STEM graduates, particularly those from minority populations.

The general aims of the Research and Education Program for HBCUs/MIs are to (a) enhance research and education programs and capabilities in scientific and engineering disciplines critical to the national security functions of DoD; (b) enhance the capacity of HBCUs/MIs to participate in DoD research programs and activities; and (c) increase the number of graduates, including underrepresented minorities, in fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

This solicitation invites applications (also referred to as “proposals”) for acquisition of equipment/instrumentation to be used in research areas of interest to the Agencies and to further the education of students in areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that correlate with the Agencies’ research interests.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications must be received by 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time on August 28, 2020.

To minimize the possibility of a late submission due to unexpected network or equipment issues, DoD recommends that applications be submitted at least two days prior to the date and time indicted above.

Organizations must have a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number, active System for Award Management (SAM) registration, and Grants.gov account to apply for grants.

Creating a Grants.gov account can be completed online in minutes, but DUNS and SAM registrations may take several weeks. Therefore, an organization's registration should be done in sufficient time to ensure it does not impact the entity's ability to meet application submission deadlines.

Acknowledgement letters will be sent by ARO to applicants by October 12, 2020.

Award decisions are expected to be announced late April 2021 by acceptance/declination letters via e-mail. Awards are expected to be issued by late July 2021.

No more than three (3) applications are allowed per institution. If more than three otherwise eligible applications are received from a given HBCU/MI, the institution will be required to withdraw all but three.
