ABOUT The Student Internship Program (SIP)

The DoN Historically Black Colleges and Universities/Minority Institutions (HBCU/MI) Program is working to bring awareness to the nation that the value of students at HBCU/MIs is crucial to maintaining a competitive edge within the STEM field. Students attending HBCU/MIs are primed to provide the research rigor and academic acumen necessary to address high-risk science and technology challenges.

The Student Internship Program (SIP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.
