Federal Services Academies

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate Office of University Programs is offering the DHS Summer Research Team Program for Federal Service Academies to provide faculty and student research teams opportunities to conduct research at a university-based DHS Centers of Excellence like IIAD. The research will be in areas of interest common to both DHS and the Department of Defense (DOD).

The intent of the program is to increase DHS-DOD collaboration in scientific and engineering research and build a partnership between DHS S&T, the DHS Centers and future military leaders. This program is designed to engage faculty, along with rising senior cadets and midshipmen, in challenging research opportunities at some of the Nation’s best research institutions or on the front lines of homeland security and defense.

DHS S&T’s Directorate Office of University Programs provides funding for the summer research experiences at the DHS Centers and DHS field studies. The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) administers and manages this program on behalf of DHS. ORISE is responsible for the implementation of the program, processing applications, managing the application review process, notifying applicants of awards, and managing payments for participants.
