Initiative for Universities

The Institute’s science education program supports initiatives with the power to transform education in the life sciences for all students.  Through its initiative for research universities, HHMI awards four- or five-year grants to support science education at the undergraduate, K-12, and community college levels.

The 2014 competition specifically challenged universities to develop and implement strategies that would significantly increase the persistence in science of undergraduate students from all backgrounds.  Institutions invited to the most recent competition were classified by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as “very high” and “high” research activity and offered baccalaureate degrees in the natural sciences.
