The Tribal Colleges Research Grants Program (TCRGP) offers grants to tribal colleges and universities for research projects that address concerns and needs of tribal and reservation communities, including projects that focus on health, food security, environment, and agricultural production research.

Projects that integrate social and biological sciences to address many of the challenges facing agriculture and rural communities are a priority, such as:

  • Increasing global demand for food production in the face of limited natural resources
  • Improving health and reducing obesity by engaging in healthy lifestyles and consuming healthy diets
  • Alleviating poverty by fostering economic opportunity

Eligible applicants are tribal colleges and universities designated as a 1994 Institution under the Educational Land-Grant Status Act of 1994.
