Building the Department of Homeland Security’s Next Generation of Arctic STEM Professionals
Education outreach and workforce development is a core mission for ADAC. ADAC’s Integrated Education program currently encompases three projects: Career Development Grant Scholarships, the Minority Serving Insitution (MSI) Summer Intern Program, and the Arctic Summer Internship Program (ASIP). The intent of ADAC’s integrated education program is to contribute to the next generation of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) professionals for the Homeland Security Enterprise. In Program Year 4, ADAC will conduct the Arctic Summer Intern Program (ASIP) which will integrate visiting Minority Serving Institution (MSI) student interns with participating ADAC fellows in a comprehensive orientation and mission-focused education experience which will include individual research concept development, visits to Arctic-concerned Federal entities in the Anchorage area, and a 2-week Arctic field work experience at Utqiagvik (Barrow) Alaska.
