Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology: The Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) program makes resources available to enhance the research capabilities of minority-serving institutions through the establishment of centers that effectively integrate education and research. CREST promotes the development of new knowledge, enhancements of the research productivity of individual faculty, and an expanded presence of students historically underrepresented in STEM disciplines. HBCU-RISE awards specifically target HBCUs to support the expansion of institutional research capacity as well as an increase in the production of doctoral students at those institutions. This solicitation requests proposals for: (1) CREST centers; (2) partnership supplements applied to existing CREST awards; (3) HBCU Research Infrastructure for Science & Engineering (HBCU-RISE) awards; and (4) supplements applied to SBIR/STTR Phase IIA awards for diversity collaboration with existing CREST and HBCU-RISE projects. These supplemental proposals are administered by and co-funded with the NSF Directorate for Engineering, in the Division in Industrial Innovation and Partnerships (ENG/IIP).

Additional Information on Eligibility
*Organization Limit: Proposals may only be submitted by the following: - CREST - CREST proposals are invited from minority-serving institutions of higher education in the United States. This denotes institutions that have undergraduate enrollments of 50% or more (based on total student enrollment) of members of minority groups underrepresented among those holding advanced degrees in science and engineering fields: African Americans, Alaska Natives, American Indians, Hispanic Americans, and Native Pacific Islanders. Preference will be given to institutions with demonstrated strengths in NSF-supported fields, as evidenced by a developing capacity to offer doctoral degrees in one or more science, technology, engineering, or mathematics disciplines. Institutions must also demonstrate a willingness and capacity to serve as a resource center in one or more research areas, as well as possess a demonstrated commitment and track record in enrolling and graduating minority scientists and engineers, and strong collaborations in the proposed field of research. Priority consideration will be given to science and engineering disciplines or research areas where minorities are significantly underrepresented. HBCU-RISE - HBCU-RISE proposals are invited from Historically Black Colleges and Universities that offer doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines. SBIR /STTR - SBIR/STTR diversity collaborative supplement proposals are invited from current SBIR/STTR Phase IIA grantees and their CREST or HBCU-RISE institution partners. *PI Limit:Principal Investigators for CREST, HBCU-RISE, and SBIR/STTR awards must be employed by a CREST, HBCU-RISE, or SBIR/STTR-eligible institution, respectively.
