Abstract:

Section 832 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1991 increased the statutory authority of the Department of Defense to provide infrastructure assistance to Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other Minority Institutions HBCUsMIs. Under this authority, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research AFOSR contracted with the University of the District of Columbia UDC, and separately with Southern University at Baton Rouge, to provide technical assistance to HBCUsMIs to enhance their ability to compete successfully for Air Force basic and applied research grants, contracts, and fellowships. Technical assistance was provided in structuring formal sponsored research programs, proposal development, acquainting HBCUsMIs scientific faculties with Air Force research programs, and guidance in grant and contract management. The effort also included counseling and advising HBCUsMIs to facilitate their adherence to related technical performance, and administrative and Federal regulatory requirements.
