2014 Presentation of 1890 Capacity Building Grants Program at the Project Directors Conference
Three Major Goals of the 1890 Capacity Building Grants Program are:
- to advance cultural diversity of the food and agricultural scientific and professional work force by attracting and educating more students from underrepresented groups
- to strengthen linkages among the 1890 institutions, other colleges and universities, USDA, other federal agencies, and private industry, and
- to enhance and strengthen the quality of Teaching, Research and Extension programs at the 1890 institutions to more readily establish them as full partners in the U.S. food and agricultural sciences higher education system.
