The UC Office of Research & Graduate Studies (ORGS) is delighted to announce the results of the 2011 review for the UC-HBCU Initiative.

2011 UC-HBCU Awards

Congratulations to Associate Professor of History, Sharon Block on receiving a UC HBCU Initiative award for Summer Research Scholars at UCI!  She will be mentoring two students from her HBCU partner at Morgan State University for approximately 9 weeks of internship in Summer 2012.  Students will spend that time learning to define a historical research project, conduct research, and write and revise a persuasive research paper.  The final paper will be geared toward use as the writing sample that is required for fellowship and graduate applications in History.  Dr. Darryl Peterkin, the Director of the Morgan State University Honors Program will partner with her to identify and select appropriate students to take part in the Summer Research Scholars at UCI.  Please see http://www.ucop.edu/graduate-studies/initiatives-outreach/uc-hbcu-program/ for more information on the awards UC wide, and for future Calls for  Proposals.

Applications were reviewed and ranked by a committee consisting of faculty and administrators from the University of California and Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The peer review meeting was held on May 3, 2011, and 30% of the submitted proposals were selected for funding.

Awardees by Principal Investigator

UCOP has been very pleased with the enthusiastic response to the RFP from UC faculty and their HBCU partners.  The proposal review was very competitive and many more excellent applications were submitted than could not be funded due to budgetary limitations. Ultimately, only 30% of the submitted proposals were selected for funding. However, there will be a new Request for Proposals for the UC-HBCU Initiative announced during the 2011-12 academic year.  The committee took great care to offer constructive feedback on each submission and UCOP hopes that the applicants will find it useful should they choose to resubmit.  Their overall scores and reviewer comments will be available for their review beginning May 20th.  (Instructions for accessing them via proposalCENTRAL will be provided at that time).

 

In Fall of 2011-12 there will be a new RFP released for the UC-HBCU Initiative.
