FAQs of Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program

Program
The Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions (DHSI) Program provides grants to assist Hispanic Serving Institutes (HSIs) to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the attainment of, Hispanic students. These grants also enable HSIs to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability.

HSI (Hispanic-Serving Institutions) Designation
The U.S. Department of Education and the HSI Division do not officially grant an institution an HSI designation. Institutions are considered HSIs based on their grant award status for the duration of their grant award, which is five years. The Department defines an HSI as an institution of higher education that has an enrollment of undergraduate full-time equivalent students that is at least 25 percent Hispanic at the end of the award year immediately preceding the date of application.

Palo Alto College HSI-STEM CAARE Project
This project meets the objectives of the Department of Education’s STEM program in that it will enable talented, financially in need Hispanic students to secure a first-rate education and receive the support and preparation they need to transfer and graduate with degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (Project Abstracts for New Grantees for FY 2011).
