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 thirteen 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:

  • Advanced Manufacturing Network
  • Additive Manufacturing Post Processing Partnership
  • Advanced Sensors Technologies for Applications in Electrical Engineering - Research and Innovation excellence Consortium
  • Consortium for High Energy Density Science
  • Consortium on Nuclear Security Technologies
  • Consortium Hybrid Resilient Energy Systems
  • Energy Sciences: Experimental and Modeling Consortium
  • Consortium for Nuclear Security Advanced Manufacturing Enhanced by Machine Learning
  • 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
  • Successful Training and Effective Pipelines to National Laboratories with STEM Core
  • Scholarly Partnership in Nuclear Security

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
