Applicants are encouraged to draw on the knowledge of outside scholars who would contribute expertise and fresh insights to the project. Each project must be organized around a core topic or set of themes. The only eligible applicants are colleges and universities designated by the U.S. Department of Education as Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Tribal Colleges and Universities.
