UC-HBCU Grant

Our Boosting Representation of African-Americans in the Geosciences (BRAAG) proposal, led by Prof. Asmeret Asefaw Berhe, is selected for funding by the UC-HBCU Program. The three-year grant in collaboration with HBCU partners from Kentucky State University, Tennessee State University and Howard University will provide summer research opportunities and graduate admission support to 12 students over three years. Immersive and enriching research and professional development activities will be provided in collaboration with several UC Merced and neighboring research facilities.
