A Proposal to Establish a Small Grants Program for Research on Poverty by Faculty at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, 1890s Schools, and Tribal Colleges and Universities

Grants and Contracts Details


Objective Faculty located at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), 1890 Colleges and Universities, and Tribal Colleges and Universities have much to contribute to our knowledge on the causes and consequences of poverty, inequality, and their correlates. However, the faculty at these institutions often lack the resources necessary to conduct social science research on poverty and inequality compared to their colleagues at doctoral-granting, research-extensive universities. In a bid to foster and build research capacity on poverty at HBCUs, 1890, and Tribal Colleges and Universities the UK Center for Poverty Research (UKCPR) proposes to establish a HBCU. 1890. and Tribal Colleges and Universities Small Grants Program. This program, which will be conducted during the fall of2004, is to be a cooperative endeavor between UKCPR and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with funding provided by ASPE as an add-on to the core FY2004 budget for UKCPR. Funding from this program will provide critical seed monies for faculty research capacity building activities on poverty and inequality in America.
