Grants to USA Hispanic-serving institutions of higher education to improve the academic success of and expand educational opportunities for Hispanic students. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to enable HSIs to expand and enhance the academic offerings, program quality, faculty quality, and institutional stability of colleges and universities that are educating the majority of Hispanic college students and help large numbers of Hispanic students and low-income individuals complete postsecondary degrees.
