Department of defense news release (Aug. 9, 2005): DoD selects tribal colleges and universities for grants.

The Department of Defense announced today plans to award instrumentation grants totaling $2.42 million to nine tribal colleges and universities. These grants will be made under the fiscal 2005 DoD Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions Infrastructure Support Program. The grants will enhance programs and capabilities at these minority institutions in scientific disciplines critical to national security and the DoD.

This announcement is the result of merit competition for infrastructure support funding conducted for the Office of Defense Research and Engineering by the Army Research Office. The solicitation resulted in 15 proposals in response to a broad agency announcement issued in February 2005. The Army Research Office plans to award nine equipment grants ranging from $66,000 to $400,000. Each award will have a 12-month performance period. Awards will be made only after written agreements are reached between the Department and the institutions. The list of recipients is available at: <http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Aug2005/d20050809Tribal.pdf>.
