Brandeis and Hampton University renew science partnership

Brandeis has received a prestigious National Science Foundation grant to continue to collaborate on research into cutting-edge materials with Hampton University, a historically black institution in Virginia.

The $3.6 million, 6-year grant is part of the NSF's Partnerships for Research and Education in Materials (PREM). The program partners historically black colleges and universities with 20 universities that have been designated Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC).

The PREM program seeks to improve the research capacity of minority-serving universities. It also aims to boost diversity in the sciences by increasing the recruitment, retention and graduation rates of individuals from underrepresented groups.
