Program Summary

Program Summary

The Department of Defense (DoD) is soliciting applications for the acquisition of equipment/instrumentation under the Fiscal Year 2016 Research and Education Program for HBCU/MI. The Research and Education Program is designed to enhance the research capabilities of HBCUs and MIs and strengthen their science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM) education programs.

The purpose of funding under this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is to (1) support the acquisition of equipment/instrumentation to augment existing research capabilities or to develop new capabilities in research areas of interest to DoD, and (2) attract students to pursue studies leading to STEM careers. Although funding provided under this BAA cannot be used for student support, in order to further DoD's objective of attracting students to pursue studies leading to STEM careers, applicants must address the impact of the requested equipment/instruments on student participation in research.

Individual awards will range from $50,000 to $500,000. All awards will have a performance period of 12 months.
