A 10-week summer internship program for students majoring in homeland security related science, technology, engineering and mathematics (HS-STEM) disciplines is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The program is open to undergraduates in research areas relevant to the DHS mission as well as to graduate students interested in the specific field of Nuclear and Radiological Threat Detection.
The program, whose goal is to engage a diverse, educated, and skilled pool of scientists and engineers in HS-STEM issues, provides students with opportunities to conduct research at federal research facilities across the country. Another objective is to enhance the HS-STEM workforce through long-term relationships between student researchers, DHS, and federal research facilities.
