- The DoD HBCU/MI Summer Research Program is open for applications. The Summer Research Program provides a bridge between the classroom and real-world experiences and aims to increase the number of minority scientists and engineers throughout the DoD. The initiative encourages students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines, guides them toward advanced studies, and prepares them for careers in science and engineering fields important to the defense mission. Motivated students, both undergraduate and graduate, are placed for an 11-week research experience at DoD facilities (laboratories and centers) across the nation. Under the supervision of DoD scientists and engineers, students conduct research relevant to the defense mission. Applications are due by February 1, 2022, 11:59 PST.
