This event’s mission is to increase HBCU and MI participation. The Air Force Small Business Technology Transfer (AF STTR) program, a $97M small business program, is reaching out to Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions (HBCU/MI) with an opportunity to apply for funding of research and development through strategic partnerships with small businesses and provide educational opportunities with the Air Force and Space Force.
