DEVCOM ARL established the DEVCOM ARL Historically Black College and University/Minority-Serving Institutions Research Partnerships to advance innovative basic research in areas of strategic importance to the Army. The program will provide funding for HBCU/MIs to support basic research focused on partnerships with major DEVCOM ARL research programs, bringing competitively selected HBCU/MI research teams into existing Army Futures Command (AFC) Collaborative Research Alliances (CRAs), Collaborative Technology Alliances (CTAs), and research centers. The Army CRAs, CTAs, and centers work with Army, industry, and other academic partners to conduct and transition research to technology demonstration.
The program seeks HBCU/MIs interested in participating in new research partnerships with opportunities and to recruit, educate, and train outstanding students and postdoctoral researchers through participation in collaborative research in science and technology areas relevant to the Army. This opportunity will establish three to five new HBCU/MI research partnerships, each selected to enhance existing research under an individual Army CRA, CTA, and/or center.
