The White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (WHIHBCU) is co-hosting a series of webinars to educate Historically Black Colleges and Universities on the grants and opportunities available to them throughout the federal government.

This webinar will provide participants with information about federal contract funding opportunities for research and development at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the nation’s medical research agency which makes important discoveries that improve health and save lives. During this webinar NIH staff will provide a high-level overview focusing on funding opportunities inclusive of cooperative agreements and contracts. In addition, there will be a high-level discussion on the NIH Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program area.
