This program promotes and strengthens the ability of Alaska Native-Serving Institutions and Native Hawaiian-Serving Institutions to carry out education, applied research, and related community development programs.
NIFA intends this program to address educational needs, as determined by each institution, within a broadly defined area of food, agricultural, natural resource and human (FANH) sciences. Priority will be given to those projects that enhance educational equity for underrepresented students; strengthen institutional education capacities; prepare students for careers related to the FANH sciences of the United States; and maximize the development and use of resources to improve food and agricultural sciences teaching programs.
