Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The DHSI Program provides grants to assist Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the academic attainment of, Hispanic students. DHSI Program grants also enable HSIs to expand and enhance the academic offerings, program quality, faculty quality, and institutional stability of colleges and universities that are educating the majority of Hispanic college students and help large numbers of Hispanic students and low-income individuals complete postsecondary degrees. Background: Hispanic students are enrolling in postsecondary institutions at higher rates than ever before; however, we continue to lose a substantial number of Hispanic students prior to degree completion.1 Additionally, while Hispanic students have very high enrollments at 2-year institutions, the transfer rate to 4-year institutions, as well as the rate of certificate and associate degree completion, continues to be low.2 This is unacceptable especially considering the evidence showing how essential postsecondary education, including certification programs, is to full participation in today’s competitive workforce. Given the growth of the Hispanic population, it is imperative that we ensure educational success for our youngest and fastest growing population. As a nation, we cannot afford to have such a large portion of our population undereducated and therefore underrepresented in competitive careers in a global economy. Progress toward higher rates of Hispanics with postsecondary degrees requires intentional and ongoing support throughout every level of the educational pipeline. To this end, in this competition, the Department is inviting applicants to focus on the various aspects of the teacher preparation pipeline. Currently, Hispanic teachers make up about 7.8 percent of the teacher workforce, yet Hispanic students make up over 24 percent of the public school system’s elementary and secondary student 1 www.http://nces.ed.gov/programs/digest/d15/ tables/dt15_326.20.asp. 2 US Census Bureau, Population Division Survey, 2014 Annual Social and Economic Supplement, Table 1: Educational Attainment. 2015. www.census.gov/hhes/socdemo/education/data/ cps/2014/tables.html.
