Defense and Security Collaborations

The role of Defense and Security Collaborations is to facilitate participation with and investments from U.S. Department of Defense agencies, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. intelligence agencies and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Students have a wide variety of funding opportunities from mission agencies, including scholarships, local and residential internships, and fellowships. Student participation in these programs is also a good way for faculty to engage with federal laboratories. Mission agencies provide opportunities not only for STEM students but also for students in humanities and business. Visit the Department of Defense STEM page for all currently-available opportunities. Feel free to contact the Defense and Security Collaborations office for assistance searching for or applying to student opportunities.
