The Department of Defense (DoD) announced today plans to award instrumentation grants totaling $2.7 million to 11 tribal colleges and universities (TCUs). These grants will be made under the fiscal 2003 DoD Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions Infrastructure Support Program. The grants will enhance programs and capabilities at these minority institutions in scientific disciplines critical to national security and the DoD.
This announcement is the result of merit competition for infrastructure support funding conducted for the Office of Defense Research and Engineering by the Army Research Office through a broad agency announcement issued in January 2003. The Army Research Office plans to award 11 grants ranging from $76,000 to $400,000, only after written agreements are reached between the Department and the institutions.
