This program provides awards to enhance the quality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) instructional and outreach programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) as a means to broaden participation in the Nation's STEM workforce. Support is available for implementation projects and planning grants. Implementation projects should include comprehensive institutional approaches to strengthen STEM teaching and learning. Proposed activities should be the result of a careful analysis of institutional needs, address institutional and NSF goals, and have the potential to result in significant and sustainable improvements in STEM program offerings. Typical project implementation strategies include: curriculum enhancement, faculty professional development, undergraduate research, academic enrichment, infusion of technology to
enhance STEM instruction, collaborations with research institutions and industry, and other activities that meet institutional needs. Planning grants provide support to an institution in order to undertake an institutional STEM self-analysis and to identify activities and strategies for an implementation project.
