|The US Department of Education’s Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions (DHSI) Program provides grants to assist Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs)—such as UCI—to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the academic attainment of, Hispanic students.
HSIs interested in applying to this grant program can use the development of their comprehensive plan to examine the alignment of their mission and current strategic plan with the needs of the target population and surrounding community to develop, enhance, and implement leadership, practice, and policies that best promote student success. Moreover, HSIs can use their plans as road maps to help all students, especially those with the highest needs, find exciting pathways to employment and career advancement. UCI’s plan for attaining and excelling as an HSI may be found here.
This competition includes the following two DoED priorities:
Internal Application Process
UCI may submit only one application in response to this call, therefore interested applicants are asked to submit the following to the Office of Research (via the UCI Review application portal) by June 10, 2019:
Following receipt of internal applications, an ad hoc review committee will be convened. If more than one application is submitted from any given school, the Dean may be asked to rank them in order to aid the review committee in their deliberations. The selected candidate will be notified as quickly as possible in order to allow them time to meet the July 15, 2019 DoED deadline for full applications.
Please refer to the full RFA before preparing an internal application. Non-responsive internal proposals will be returned without committee review. Questions about this call and UCI’s strategic planning regarding our HSI status, may be directed to Joseph Morales in the UCI Office of Inclusive Excellence. Questions about the internal review process may be directed to Greg Ruth at firstname.lastname@example.org or x4-0372.
