Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program

The Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program (EM MSIPP) promotes the education and development of the next generation workforce in critical science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) related disciplines that compliment current and future missions of The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM).

DOE-EM recognizes that successfully completing its legacy environmental cleanup mission requires maintaining a highly-trained, technically skilled, and diverse workforce. Minority representation in critical science and engineering fields is an important part of EM’s vision for this future workforce.

EM MSIPP provides students and graduates of Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) with hands-on education and experience by supporting collaborations between MSIs and DOE national laboratories. According to The U.S. Department of Education, MSIs are institutions in which one minority group constitutes at least 25% of total undergraduate enrollment, or in which all minority students constitute at least 50% of the total undergraduate enrollment.
