    Department of Defense (DoD)


    The Department of Defense (DoD) is soliciting applications for the acquisition of equipment/instrumentation under the Fiscal Year 2019 Research and Education Program for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority-Serving Institutions (HBCU/MI).
    The Research and Education Program is designed to enhance the research capabilities of HBCU and MI and strengthen their STEM education programs. The purpose of this program is to (1) support the acquisition of equipment/instrumentation to augment existing 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 program cannot be used for student support, in order to further DoDs objective of attracting students to pursue studies leading to STEM careers, applicants must address the impact of the requested equipment/instrumentation on student participation in research.
    The general aims of the Research and Education Program for HBCUs/MIs are to (a) enhance research and education programs and capabilities in scientific and engineering disciplines critical to the national security functions of DoD; (b) enhance the capacity of HBCUs/MIs to participate in DoD research programs and activities; and (c) increase the number of graduates, including underrepresented minorities, in fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
    This solicitation invites applications for acquisition of equipment/instrumentation to be used in research areas of interest to the Agencies and to further the education of students in those areas.
