The U.S. Department of Defense announces the availability of the FY 2015 Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority-Serving Institutions (HBCU/MI). The BAA aims to:
- enhance research programs and capabilities in scientific and engineering disciplines critical to the national security functions of the DoD;
- enhance the capacity of HBCU/MI to participate in DoD research programs and activities; and increase the number of graduates, including underrepresented minorities, in fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) important to the defense mission.
Basic research proposals are requested in areas of scientific interest to the DoD agencies.
Projects must be conducted by a single PI working within his/her institution and include student involvement. There will be no collaborations outside the PI’s institution.
Applications are due by January 15, 2015.
