FHWA Awards $1 Million to Minority Universities for Transportation Research. (Management and Administration).

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced that it has awarded $1 million in cost-sharing cooperative agreements to Minority Institutions of Higher Education (MIHEs) to conduct transportation research and technology activities.

FHWA's competitive assistance program allows MIHEs to compete solely with one another for cooperative, cost-sharing agreements. The program's goal is to foster MIHE research and technology activities that will contribute substantially to FHWA's mission and to help prepare faculty and students at these institutions to successfully participate in the competitive research arena.

The agreements matched the expertise and capabilities of 11 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) with FHWA's specific research needs.
