A Leading HBCU for R&D Contract Opportunities

AAMU-RISE Foundation Core Competencies

The AAMU-RISE Foundation’s mission is to grow and develop in research, particularly contract research in partnership with other organizations, whether they are private or  government entities. We leverage their capabilities and our capabilities in contract-related endeavors that seek solutions to real-world, complex, problems.

The AAMU-RISE Foundation has established past performance through contracts and subcontracts with government agencies and industry partners such as:

In state-of-the-art laboratory facilities located on the      campus of Alabama A&M University, internationally renowned researchers and faculty with vast expertise in  multi-disciplines conduct R&D  in emerging technologies such as additive manufacturing, biotechnology, and solar  hybrid energy sources.

HBCUs can generate revenue and propel their students to the top of the competition by developing their research and contract capabilities the way the AAMU-RISE Foundation has. Performance on contract-based tasks allows them to work on real-life, meaningful technical projects that matter.
