DHS S&T OUP Summer Internship Program for students majoring in STEM disciplines

DHS S&T OUP Summer Internship Program
Application Deadline: January 6, 2014

Program Overview: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsors a 10-week summer internship program for students majoring in homeland security related science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines. The program provides students with quality research experiences at federal research facilities located across the country and allows students the opportunity to establish connections with DHS professionals. It is open to undergraduate students in a broad spectrum of HS-STEM Disciplines and DHS mission-relevant research areas.   The ultimate goal of the program is to engage a diverse, educated and skilled pool of scientists and engineers in HS-STEM areas and to promote long-term relationships between students, researchers, DHS and research facilities to enhance the HS-STEM workforce.

Welcome to the Center for STEM Education's K-12 Outreach Blog!

WHO WE ARE: The Center for STEM Education is a Northeastern center focused on increasing opportunities and awareness in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields for students, especially those from backgrounds currently underrepresented in these careers. We work closely with our community to accomplish this goal, and have many volunteer opportunities both on campus and in the schools and communities in which we work.
VOLUNTEERING: Whether you are passionate about enhancing math and science education for K-12 students, want to get more involved in your community, or just want to fulfill some required volunteer hours, you've come to the right place! Read about our upcoming volunteer opportunities in the blog below, and then click on the link for the event in the right-hand column to register. We offer both ongoing and one-day volunteer opportunities, and new events are being added all of the time. We encourage you to also use this blog to discuss your current service experiences with other students at NU!

We also encourage you to refer to the resources provided to gain a deeper understanding of your role as a volunteer and the community that you will be serving.
