Historically Black Colleges and Universities - Undergraduate Program: HBCU-UP provides awardsto strengthen STEM undergraduate education and research at HBCUs.Support is available through thefollowing tracks: <ul> <li>The new HBCU Excellence in Research (EiR) component supports projects that enable STEM and STEM education faculty to further develop research capacity at HBCUs and to conduct research. Proposals submitted to this new track will be routed for review to one of the Research and Related Activities (R&amp;RA) directorates. Funding recommendations will be made by the relevant R&amp;RA directorate(s). Awards will be funded by the relevant R&amp;RA directorate(s) with co-funding from the Office of Integrative Activities (OIA). Prospective PIs are encouraged to contact the cognizant program officer from OIA for further information.</li> <li>Targeted Infusion Projects (TIP), which provide support to achieve a short-term, well-defined goal for improving the quality of undergraduate STEM education at HBCUs.</li> <li>Broadening Participation Research (BPR) in STEM Education projects, which provide support for researchthat seeks to create and study new theory-driven models and innovations related to the participation and success of underrepresented groups in STEM undergraduate education.</li> <li>Research Initiation Awards (RIA), which provide support for STEM faculty with no prior or recent research funding to pursue research at the home institution, a NSF-funded research center, a research intensive institution, or a national laboratory.</li> <li>Implementation Projects (IMP), which provide support to design, implement, study, and assess comprehensive institutional efforts for increasing the number of students receiving undergraduate degrees in STEM and enhancing the quality of their preparation by strengthening STEM education and research. 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.</li> <li>Broadening Participation Research Centers (BPRC), which provide support to conduct broadening participation research at institutions that have held three rounds of Implementation or ACE Implementation Projects and with demonstrated capability to conduct broadening participation research. Broadening Participation Research Centers are expected to represent the collective intelligence of HBCU STEM higher education, and serve as national hubs for the rigorous study and broad dissemination of the critical pedagogies and culturally sensitive interventions that contribute to the success of HBCUs in educating African American STEM undergraduates. Centers are expected to conduct research on STEM education and broadening participation in STEM; perform outreach to HBCUs in order to build capacity for conducting this type of research; and work to disseminate promising broadening participation research in order to enhance STEM education and research outcomes for African American undergraduates across the country.</li> <li>Other Funding Opportunities include EArly-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER), Rapid Response Research (RAPID), conference, and planning grants.</li> </ul>
