ARL's HBCU/MI programs recognize STEM talent pool painted in many colors
February 08, 2011
ARL has been a leader in recruiting a culturally diverse workforce with programs specifically organized to access promising science and engineering students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and other minority servicing institutions. Partner schools such as Morehouse School of Medicine, and North Carolina A&T State, North Carolina Central, Howard, Morgan State, Jackson State and Florida A&M universities received more than $19 million dollars in funding from ARL in 2009 to support basic research, seminars, internships and other initiatives that leverage university technical capabilities to fulfill ARL mission requirements. This edition of ARL Inside spotlights students and a faculty member from the University of the Virgin Islands who spent the summer of 2009 at ARL working on real Army projects to help today's Soldiers in theater.
