HEA: AID Minority Science and Engineering Improvement - FY 2006


CFDA Number: 84.120A - Minority Science and Engineering Improvement

Program Goal: To improve the capacity of minority-serving institutions, which traditionally have limited resources and serve large numbers of low-income and minority students, to improve student success and to provide high-quality educational opportunities for their students.

Objective 1 of 3: To increase enrollment of minority undergraduates in the fields of engineering or physical and biological sciences at minority-serving institutions over the long term.
Indicator 1.1 of 1: Enrollment number: The number of students in engineering, biological or physical sciences at minority-serving institutions.
 
Measure 1.1.1 of 1: The number of full-time degree-seeking minority undergraduates enrolling in fields of engineering or physical and biological sciences at minority-serving grantee institutions.
