The Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program (MSIPP) is designed to build a sustainable pipeline between the Department of Energy's (DOE) sites/labs and minority-serving institutions in STEM disciplines, and bring a heightened awareness of NNSA plants and laboratories to institutions with a common interest in STEM research fields.

Currently MSIPP supports six consortium-based teams consisting of participants from select institutions. These teams bring together institutions that share interests in STEM research areas and who can utilize the facilities and technology available at DOE/NNSA’s labs and sites. The consortia:

  • Consortium Enabling Cybersecurity Opportunities and Research
  • Consortium on Advanced Manufacturing
  • Consortium for Materials and Energy Security
  • Consortium for Research on the Science and Engineering of Signatures
  • Consortium for Integrating Energy Systems in Engineering and Science Education
  • Advanced Manufacturing Network

Program Requirements:

MSIPP 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.
