HHMI Inclusive Excellence competition starts spring 2019

February 27, 2019

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is pleased to announce a third Inclusive Excellence (IE) competition beginning this spring 2019.  Through IE, colleges and universities are awarded institutional transformation grants to significantly increase institutional capacity for inclusion of students from all backgrounds in science.

The official Program Announcement will not be available until late spring.  However, there are important actions that your institution can take now to begin preparing your Pre-proposal ideas.  Go to and click on the Start Here button in the IE Competition Announcement box to learn more and to sign up to receive an email once the Program Announcement and Intent to Apply become available.

Please forward information about this opportunity to colleagues who may be interested in this initiative.  Contact us at with any questions.

With best wishes,

The HHMI IE3 Team
