About:  The Global Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Equity Innovation Hub has established CSU HSI Community Grants to cultivate promising practices at CSU HSIs that accelerate educational equity and innovation, leverage technology, and collaborations with educational, community, and industry partners to activate talent and build a more inclusive and diverse workforce. Applicants may request one year of grant funding for up to $150,000.

In addition to grant awards, applicants may also request Apple technology and accessories based on the proposal needs and design. Alternatively, applicants may decide to submit a proposal for either grant funding or an Apple Technology Award. Apple will be granting Apple-specific hardware directly to grant recipients. This includes devices such as Mac, iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, Beats Headphones and others available on the Apple Store website.

All CSUs federally designated as HSIs are eligible to apply. Proposals that demonstrate strong alignment with the goals of CSU HSI Community Grants and programming Focus Areas (see links below) are encouraged. Of additional interest are those proposals committed to cross-collaboration in California, nationally, and globally across HSIs and other institutions of higher education (including other CSUs and community colleges), K-12 educational partners, industry partners, or community partners.
