Title V, Part A – Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions (DHSI) Grants (Main title)
Awarded by the Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) with the U.S. Department of Education, Title V grants are one of three grant programs managed by the Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Division.
The Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions (DHSI) Program (Title V, Part A) provides grants to HSIs to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the attainment of, Latinx/Chicanx students. These grants also enable HSIs to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability. The purpose is to:
- Expand educational opportunities for, and improve the academic attainment of Latinx/Chicanx students; and
- Expand and enhance the academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability of colleges and universities that educate the majority of Latinx/Chicanx (Hispanic) students
Title V DHSI grants are five-year grants that are awarded on a competitive basis.
