UC places a priority on enrolling scholars from historically underrepresented populations. The UC-HBCU Initiative seeks to increase the number of scholars from HBCUs enrolling in and attending UC graduate programs. The initiative also supports faculty and departmental efforts and cross-institutional collaborations between UC campuses and HBCUs. The program currently provides three funding opportunities: Summer Research Internship Support Grants, Summer Research and Graduate Admission Pathways Grants, and Small Research Grants. For 2023-24, UCI can offer up to $50,000 to fund a UC-HBCU Internship Support Grant not funded by UCOP. Associate Vice Provost Sharon Block (email@example.com) can assist with grant draft review and arranging a letter of support from OIE.
