Grants to USA eligible institutions of higher education for activities and programs to improve the academic success of minority students. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to enable IHEs to expand and enhance the academic offerings, program quality, faculty quality, and institutional stability of colleges and universities that are educating the majority of Hispanic college students and help large numbers of Hispanic students and low-income individuals complete postsecondary degrees. Hispanic‑Serving Institutions (HSIs) are eligible to apply.
Through leadership, practice, and data that support evidence-based decision-making, HSIs can foster a strong sense of belonging and implement robust academic programs that focus on student learning through high impact practices. Examples of such programs include undergraduate research experiences, as well as other support services that provide advising and mentoring to students and that promote retention and degree completion. HSIs can provide the necessary social and emotional supports needed to promote student success.
To this end, this competition includes two competitive preference priorities that are designed to support students holistically and promote continual success.
For details on each of the above priorities, see https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2022-04-06/pdf/2022-07212.pdf#page=2.
