Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI Program): 19-540
he HSI Program seeks to enhance the quality of undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education at Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs) and to increase retention and graduation rates of undergraduate students pursuing degrees in STEM fields at HSIs. In addition, the HSI Program seeks to build capacity at HSIs that typically do not receive high-levels of NSF grant funding.
Every project should include both a research design, project evaluation, and dissemination plan appropriate to the size and scope of the project. The research design addresses a research question and/or hypothesis that is important to the project and the field. The evaluation plan examines all aspects of the project activities to inform the project's progress towards its goals. The research design together with the project evaluation provide evidence of the project's overall impact. The dissemination plan disseminates the results broadly to enhance scientific and technological understanding.
