Historically Black College and University Research Experience for Undergraduates
For four years, the UC Berkeley-HBCU (UCB-HBCU) Pathways to the Science and Engineering Doctorate Program supported undergraduates from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to undertake research at UC Berkeley and their home institutions. The program had two main goals:
- Develop a strong pipeline of undergraduate researchers inspired to pursue graduate studies,
- Increase the matriculation of African-American HBCU graduates into engineering and physical science doctoral programs at UC Berkeley and other UC campuses.
The program was funded by the University of California Office of the President.
