Inclusive Excellence: 2017 Undergraduate Science Education Grants


Tuesday, December 01, 2015

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute announces a new competition for science education grants to colleges and universities. The goal of this initiative is to help institutions build their capacity to effectively engage all students in science throughout their undergraduate years, especially those who come to college via non traditional pathways.

Through this initiative, HHMI will support colleges and universities that commit to measurably increase their infrastructure, resources, and expertise to involve undergraduate students in science, resulting in expanded access to excellence for all students. Our long-term aim is for successful strategies pioneered by the grantee institutions to serve as models to be adapted and adopted by other institutions.

The new competition will be open to US colleges and universities that award the baccalaureate degree in the natural science and are fully accredited, not-for-profit, four-year institutions. It will exclude the 40 universities awarded 2014 HHMI grants. Duke was awarded grants under this initiative in 2014, so is ineligible for this opportunity.

HHMI plans to conduct this competition twice over the next few years, and expects to award five-year grants to a total of up to 60 insitutions. Each eligible institution may submit one proposal.
