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 24 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 (AMP3)
  • Advanced Manufacturing Network (AMFN)
  • Advanced Sensors Technologies for Applications in Electrical Engineering - Research and Innovation excellence Consortium (ASTERIX)
  • Advanced Synergistic Program for Indigenous Research in Engineering (ASPIRE)
  • Application of Artificial Intelligence to Cybersecurity for Protecting National Critical Infrastructure (CONCISE)
  • Consortium enabling In- and Ex-Situ-Quality Control of Additive Manufacturing (QCAM)
  • Consortium for High Energy Density Science 2.0 (CfHEDS-2)
  • Consortium for Laser-based Analysis of Nuclear and Environmental Materials (LANEM)
  • Consortium for Nuclear Security Advanced Manufacturing Enhanced by Machine Learning (NSAM-ML)
  • Consortium for Research and Education in Materials Science and Photonics Engineering (NoVel)
  • Consortium for Research and Education in Power and Energy Systems (CREPES)
  • Consortium Hybrid Resilient Energy Systems (CHRES)
  • Consortium of Advanced Additive Manufacturing Research and Education for Energy Related Systems (CA2REERs)
  • Consortium on Nuclear Security Technologies (CONNECT)
  • Energy Sciences: Experimental and Modeling Consortium (ESEM)
  • Growing STEMs Consortium: Training the Next Generation of Engineers for the DOE/NNSA Workforce (GSC)
  • Integrated Additive Manufacturing – Establishing Minority Pathways: Opportunities for Workforce-development in Energy Research and Education (IAM-EMPOWEREd)
  • Nuclear Security Science and Technology Consortium (NSSTC)
  • Partnership for Advanced Manufacturing Education and Research (PAMER)
  • Partnership for Proactive Cybersecurity Training (PACT)
  • Partnership for Research and Education Consortium in Ceramics and Polymers 2.0 (PRE-CCAP-2)
  • Pipeline Development of Skilled Workforce in STEM through Advanced Manufacturing (STEAM)
  • Scholarly Partnership in Nuclear Security (SPINS)
  • Successful Training and Effective Pipelines to National Laboratories with STEM Core (STEP2NLs)

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.

MSIPP supports the following institutions:

Participating DOE/NNSA National Laboratories and Sites
