Partnerships for talented high school, undergraduate and graduate students summer internship positions in DOE and its National Labs.

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 ten 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. Please see consortia below:

  • Additive Manufacturing Post Processing Partnership
  • Advanced Manufacturing Network
  • Consortium Enabling Cybersecurity Opportunities and Research
  • Consortium for High Energy Density Science
  • Consortium for Integrating Energy Systems in Engineering and Science Education
  • Consortium on Nuclear Security Technologies
  • Energy Sciences: Experimental and Modeling
  • Partnership for Proactive Cybersecurity Training
  • Partnership for Research and Education Consortium in Ceramics and Polymers
  • Pipeline Development of Skilled Workforce in STEM through Advanced Manufacturing

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.
