U.S. Department of Defense Faculty Fellowship
The overwhelming majority of initiatives aimed at diversifying the STEM workforce focus exclusively on students. The research, however, shows that African Americans (and other underrepresented minority groups to a lesser degree) do substantially better in STEM fields when they are exposed to same race role models and teachers.
To address the challenge of capacity, The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense to encourage collaboration between its scientists and external partners centered on mutual scientific interest and investment.
The TMCF U.S. Department of Defense partnership will increase opportunities for faculty research, strengthen capacity building for HBCUs and aid in the overall diversification of the STEM workforce. Through the expansion of prestigious professional development opportunities, the partnership with TMCF will help to discover, innovate, and transition science and technology for the Department of Defense.
