ROME LABORATORY, New York — The Information Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory partnered with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to provide internship opportunities for students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
The two organizations signed an educational partnership agreement in 2012 and are currently working to extend the agreement for another five years. The effort has been instrumental in providing advanced science, engineering, and technology and math internships for students every summer. Under the agreement, select HBCU students who apply for an internship with TMCF are placed at the Information Directorate to work on defense research projects.
“The interns have worked on a variety of programs from cyber to big data and beyond,” said Dr. Timothy Kroecker, the senior operations research analyst and enterprise learning officer. “Last summer the Information Directorate hosted 20 talented interns from a variety of HBCUs.”
