DHS Scientific Leadership Awards for Minority-Serving Institutions Granting Bachelor Degrees
HACU encourages institutions to apply for the following opportunity within the Department of Homeland Security. This particular grant program is often in danger of being eliminated due to a lack of participation by Minority-Serving Institutions. It would send a strong message if many of our qualified institutions submitted proposals.
The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS), Science and Technology (S&T), Scientific Leadership Awards (SLA) support the development of a coordinated program of education in Homeland Security-related Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (HS-STEM) to prepare students for careers in research and development of the technology needed to secure our nation. Moreover, DHS strongly supports the development of a workforce that reflects the population of the United States of America. The DHS, S&T Directorate, Office of University Programs solicits applications from eligible Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) granting bachelor degrees to support early-career faculty and to establish homeland security–related scientific leadership programs in areas critical to homeland security.
Limit of one proposal per institution.
