Institutional Service (IS) administers programs authorized under Title III and Title V of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended.
The Aid for Institutional Development programs (commonly referred to as the Title III programs) support improvements in educational quality, management and financial stability at qualifying postsecondary institutions. Funding is focused on institutions that enroll large proportions of minority and financially disadvantaged students with low per-student expenditures. From its inception, one of the primary missions of the Title III programs has been to support the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The Title III programs have been expanded to support American Indian Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities and Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions, as well as other minority-serving institutions. The Title III programs also include the Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program.
The Title V programs strengthen institutions serving Hispanic and other low-income students. The Title V programs, as well as the Title III programs, provide financial assistance to help institutions solve problems that threaten their ability to survive, to improve their management and fiscal operations, and to build endowments.
All current Title III and Title V grantees who have had a grant for over a year are required to submit an Annual Performance Report (APR).
New grantees are required to submit an Interim Performance Report six months after their grant is awarded.
