ANERA-RISE Program Description   The Historically Black Colleges and Universities Research Infrastructure for Science and Engineering (HBCU-RISE) activity program supports the development of research capability at HBCUs that offer doctoral degrees in science and engineering disciplines. With support from the National Science Foundation, Delaware State University (DSU) will implement comprehensive strategies designed to expand DSU's research and educational capability in an effort to broaden the participation of underrepresented groups in the Applied Chemistry doctoral program and growing the diverse STEM workforce.   The goal of the program is to develop advanced nanomaterials for renewable energy applications while strengthening DSU's research and educational capability in the Department of Chemistry by: 1) Focusing on catalytic nanomaterials synthesis and characterization toward energy applications; 2) Enabling the synergy of faculty participants in the context of the materials chemistry research; 3) Developing new courses in materials chemistry and growing a network of material scientists in Delaware.   The HBCU-RISE program at DSU will enhance the research infrastructure in Materials Chemistry, and increase the number of Ph.D. courses offered under the NSF-RISE grants.                                                                                                                   Funded by the National Science Foundation
