Grants to USA historically Black colleges and universities to develop a center for educational excellence that will provide professional services and professional development for Black teachers. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
In alignment with the Department’s strategic goal for a more diverse educator workforce, the CEEBT program is designed to support one or more model centers of educational excellence at HBCUs to help increase the number of well-prepared Black teachers who teach in the Nation’s elementary and secondary schools. This program focuses on the various aspects of the teacher preparation pipeline, including the recruitment, preparation, support, and placement of Black teachers.
Accordingly, this program encourages HBCUs to develop and enhance a center of educational excellence that will implement outreach, recruitment, preparation, and support of Black teachers in subject areas that are of critical need in schools (e.g., math, science, special education, multilingual education, career and technical education).
HBCUs are positioned to enhance and develop high-quality programs that improve the preparation, support, and ultimately the retention of Black teachers in critical shortage subject areas. This program is a comprehensive approach to support multiple levels of the educational pipeline leading to educational success.
