The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) is offering a grant opportunity titled "Intelligence Community Centers for Academic Excellence". This grant aims to support the acquisition of competitive talent in the Intelligence Community. The grant program is designed to enhance the recruitment and retention of an ethnically and culturally diverse intelligence community workforce with critical capabilities for national security interests.

The grant program provides funding to institutions of higher education (IHEs) to establish or develop programs of study in educational disciplines identified by the intelligence community. The grant funds can be used for various purposes such as curriculum or program development, faculty development, laboratory equipment or improvements, and faculty research.

Eligible applicants for the grant include acceptably accredited four-year IHEs in the United States, as well as two-year IHEs (e.g., community colleges) that can apply as consortium partners. Minority-serving institutions (MSIs) such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs) are also eligible to apply.

Grant recipients will be required to submit regular reports on the use of grant funds, including the benefits to participating students, program results and accomplishments, and demographic information of participating students. The grant program aims to support the development of a diverse pool of professionals in the intelligence community and recognizes exceptional students through the IC CAE Scholars program.

Applicants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the IC CAE Program and consider innovative ideas for curriculum, partnerships, and programs that align with the interests of the intelligence community and national security. Partnerships with IC installations and private industry are also encouraged to enhance school programs and provide additional resources and opportunities for students.
