News and impacts
The Educational Partnership Program with Minority Serving Institutions aims to increase the number of traditionally underrepresented students who are trained in NOAA-related sciences. Since 2001, the EPP/MSI Cooperative Science Center (CSC) institutions have awarded post-secondary degrees to over 2,300 students in fields that support NOAA's mission. Over the same time period, these institutions awarded over half of the Ph.D. degrees that were earned by African Americans in both atmospheric science and marine science in the United States.
24 partner institutions work with NOAA to train students and align research priorities in NOAA sciences.
3,860 students have been supported by EPP/MSI programs since 2001.
2,325 post-secondary degrees have been awarded by EPP/MSI programs since 2001.
240 postsecondary students are currently being supported by CSCs.
220 undergraduate students have been supported by EPP/MSI Undergraduate Scholarship Program since 2001.
106 graduate students have completed NOAA Experiential Research and Training Opportunities since 2016.
