Additional Information on Eligibility
Minority entities are the only applicants that are eligible to apply for this grant opportunity. NIDILRR's FI Projects grant opportunity for minority serving institutions is intended to improve the capacity of minority entities to conduct high quality disability and rehabilitation research by limiting eligibility for this opportunity to minority entities and Indian tribes. Section 21(b)(2)(A) of the Act authorizes NIDILRR to make awards to minority entities and Indian tribes to carry out activities authorized under Title II of the Act. A minority entity is defined as a historically black college or university (a part B institution, as defined in section 322(2) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended), a Hispanic-serving institution of higher education, an American Indian tribal college or university, or another institution of higher education whose minority student enrollment is at least 50 percent.
