Description: The US Department of Energy and National Nuclear Security Administration seek proposals to conduct university-led projects with national laboratories and industry partners that strengthen the education and research capabilities of Minority Serving Institutions of higher education; encourage minority students to excel in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM); and increase the number of African American, Hispanic, and Native American students who graduate with STEM degrees. Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program (MSIPP) project activities should focus on one or more of the following STEM topic areas: advanced manufacturing, cybersecurity, engineering, and nuclear security.
Eligible applicants are Minority Serving Institutions designated as Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, and Tribal Colleges and Universities. Institutions are expected to lead a consortium that minimally includes a four-year college or university, advanced degree granting institution, and US Department of Energy national laboratory or site. This is a specialized program focused on supporting specific Minority Serving Institutions. Therefore, it is only open to students that attend a school that has an active federal grant under MSIPP. Students apply through their institution. School links are available on the website and applications must be submitted online.
