Application Package for Strengthening Historically Black Graduate Institutions (HBGI)

The Department of Education released a federal register notice this week regarding the application package for strengthening Historically Black Graduate Institutions. The Strengthening Historically Black Graduate Institutions (HBGI) Program provides grants to assist institutions in establishing and strengthening their physical plants, development offices, endowment funds, academic resources, and student services so that they may continue to participate in fulfilling the goal of equal opportunity in graduate education. Funds may be used to assist needy graduate students, student service programs designed to improve academic success, and many others. President Biden’s FY23 Budget Request proposes $102.3 million for the program, an increase of 9.9 percent from FY22 enacted appropriations.
