DoD Awards Grants To Tribal Colleges



                WASHINGTON - The Department of Defense (DoD) has announced plans to award instrumentation grants totaling $3.5 million to 13 tribal colleges and universities.  These grants will be made under the fiscal 2010 DoD Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions 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.  The solicitation resulted in 15 proposals in response to a broad agency announcement issued in April 2010.  The Army Research Office plans to award 13 equipment grants ranging from $132,000 to $400,000.  Each award will have a 12-month performance period.

                Awards will be made only after written agreements are reached between the department and the institutions.

                The list of recipients is available HERE
