The Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) program makes resources available to significantly enhance the research capabilities of minority-serving institutions through the establishment of centers that effectively integrate education and research. CREST promotes the development of new knowledge, enhancements of the research productivity of individual faculty, and an expanded diverse student presence in STEM disciplines. This solicitation requests proposals for CREST supplements and for HBCU Research Infrastructure for Science & Engineering (HBCU-RISE) proposals only. This solicitation does not request proposals for the establishment of new CREST centers. CREST supplements support the establishment or strengthening of partnerships and collaborations between CREST centers and nationally recognized research centers in areas of
mutual research interest and high priority for the CREST institution. Historically Black Colleges and Universities Research Infrastructure for Science and Engineering (HBCU-RISE) supports the development of research capability at HBCUs that offer doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Activities include, but are not limited to, faculty release time, technical support for research, faculty professional development, acquisition or upgrading of research equipment, collaborative research efforts with partner universities and National laboratories.
