PVAMU is one of the 22 Historically Black Colleges and Universities set to receive funds from the National Nuclear Security Administration.
The funding launches the NNSA’s new Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program which creates sustainable science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) pipeline between Department of Energy plants and laboratories and HBCUs.
Teams consisting of participants from select HBCUs and DOE plants and laboratories were developed. These teams bring together HBCUs that share similar interests in STEM research areas with the facilities and technology available at DOE’s plants and laboratories.
The teams are comprised of the 22 HBCUs and six plants and laboratories – NNSA’s Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos, and Sandia national laboratories, Kansas City Plant, Y-12 National Security Complex, and the DOE’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
PVAMU teams include:
