MSIPP Institutions

Currently, 52 minority-serving institutions participate as prime or sub-recipients under MSIPP grants. These institutions of higher education collaborate together and with the DOE/NNSA National Laboratories and Sites to form consortia-based teams. See the list of participating institutions below:

Participating DOE/NNSA National Laboratories and Sites

The following 13 labs, sites, and plants participate in MSIPP consortia to provide access to resources and opportunities to faculty and students from minority serving institutions:
