Letter of intent due July 13, 2023

The Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HCBU) Excellence in Research Program (HBCU-EiR) provides opportunities to stimulate sustainable improvement in research and development capacity. HBCU-EiR grants seek to create stronger connections between HBCU researchers and the National Science Foundation (NSF) by funding research projects aligned with NSF’s research programs.

The program was established in response to direction provided in the Senate Commerce and Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee Report (Senate Report 115-139) and is built on prior and continuing efforts by the NSF to strengthen research capacity at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). This report provided guidance to NSF to establish the HBCU Excellence in Research program “to provide opportunities for both public and private HBCUs, particularly for those who have not been successful in larger NSF Research & Related Activities competitions, in order to stimulate sustainable improvement in their research and development capacity”  (https://congress.gov/congressional-report/115th-congress/senate-report/139/1).

Nel Hydrogen announced on May 10, 2023, that they will construct a massive new plant in Michigan to build electrolyzers which split water into hydrogen and oxygen, with the goal of supplying up to four gigawatts’ worth of hydrogen each year. This follows the announcement in November that Nel would work together with GM to make electrolyzers more efficient and less expensive. The new plant would be one of the largest such facilities in the world. Nel became an ECS Institutional Member this year; GM has been an ECS Institutional Member for 71 years. (more…)
