The partnership between these two Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) seeks to provide a sustainable pathway to graduate education for Black, Indigenous, and Latina/o students, helping to dismantle systemic barriers that have led to persistent educational inequities. Grant funds provide paid summer research opportunities for eight HU students, paid research training for HU students prior to the summer research opportunities, place-based and Indigenous science workshops and activities, and guaranteed admission of HU students into bachelor’s and master’s programs at UWB.
