Historically Black Colleges and Universities - Undergraduate Program: Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have awarded a large share of bachelor's degrees to African American students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and the top ten baccalaureate institutions of African American STEM doctorate recipients from 2002-2006 are HBCUs. [1] To meet the nation's accelerating demands for STEM talent, more rapid gains in achievement, success and degree production in STEM for underrepresented minority populations are needed. The Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP) is committed to enhancing the quality of undergraduate STEM education and research at HBCUs as a means to broaden participation in the nation's STEM workforce. To this end, HBCU-UP provides awards to develop, implement, and study innovative models and approaches for making dramatic improvements in the preparation and success of HBCU undergraduate students so that they may participate successfully in STEM graduate programs and/or careers in STEM disciplines. Support is available for Targeted Infusion Projects, Broadening Participation Research Projects, Research Initiation Awards, Implementation Projects and Achieving Competitive Excellence Implementation Projects, as well as other funding opportunities.Targeted Infusion Projects (TIP) provide support to achieve a short-term, well-defined goal to innovate or improve the quality of undergraduate STEM education at HBCUs. Targeted Infusion Projects could create or adapt innovative learning experiences and pedagogies in STEM fields. Projects could develop creative uses of cyberlearning, specifically learning with cyberinfrastructure tools. Projects could enhance academic infrastructure by updating curriculum, modernizing laboratory research equipment, or improving the computational network array for research and education. Projects could enhance existing degree programs, establish new degree programs or concentrations, secure specialized accreditation or certification, or infuse STEM programs with disciplinary field advances and evolving workforce requirements. Projects that develop faculty expertise, promote implementation of educational innovations, or link to the preparation of future K-12 teachers are encouraged. Projects should be guided by research on teaching and learning.The Broadening Participation Research (BPR) in STEM Education track provides support to research projects that seek to create and study new theory-driven models and innovations related to the participation and success of diverse groups in STEM undergraduate education. BPR projects add new research-based strategies and models to broadening participation in STEM and increase the capacity of scholars at Historically Black Universities and Colleges to conduct this type of research. Research Initiation Awards (RIA) provide support for a STEM faculty member at the HBCU to pursue research at the home institution, at an NSF-funded research Center, at a research intensive institution, or at a national laboratory. Awards are intended to help further the faculty member's research capability and effectiveness, to improve research and education at his or her home institution, and to involve undergraduate students in research experiences. Research Initiation Awards are for junior faculty who are starting to build a research program, as well as for mid-career faculty who may have returned to the faculty ranks after holding an administrative post or who for some other reason need to redirect and rebuild a research program. Faculty members who hold an active Federal research award are not eligible for the Research Initiation Award.Implementation Projects provide support to design, implement, study, and assess comprehensive institutional efforts to increase the numbers of students and the quality of their preparation by strengthening STEM education and research. Implementation projects create and/or adapt and assess innovative models and materials for teaching and learning in STEM, embody knowledge about how students learn most effectively in STEM teaching and learning activities, and bring STEM disciplinary advances into the undergraduate experience. Within this track, Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Implementation Projects are intended for HBCUs with exemplary achievements and established institutionalized foundations from previous Implementation Project grants. ACE seeks ambitious, potentially transformative proposals that have the promise of significant advances in STEM undergraduate education at the institution. Other funding opportunities include: Conferences, Symposia, and Workshops; EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) and Grants for Rapid Response Research (RAPID); as well as Grant Supplements for existing awards. Additionally, PIs are invited to seek supplemental support from NSF for their participating students and faculty who are accepted as participants in one of four Department of Energy initiatives: Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI), Faculty-Student Teams (FaST), Community College Institutes (CCI),and Pre-Service Teacher (PST) Internships. These initiatives are intended to support the research opportunities in DoE national laboratories during the summer. Planning Grants for institutional STEM self-analysis and action planning which lead to an HBCU-UP proposal submission may be submitted as unsolicited proposals. Division of Human Resource Development (HRD) Special Call for ProposalsBPS-Resource Network: This solicitation includes a special call for design proposals that will lead to the development of a Broadening Participation in STEM Resource Network (BPS-Resource Network). The purpose of the BPS-Resource Network will be to assist all HRD grantees as well as other NSF stakeholders in achieving the performance goal in the NSF Strategic Plan for 2011-2016 to "Prepare and engage a diverse STEM workforce motivated to participate at the frontiers." Design project proposals are encouraged from all eligible NSF proposers. The scope of the BPS-Resource Network design proposals should not be limited to the HBCU-UP program goal.
