DHS research programs offer invaluable opportunities for participants to gain experience supporting the county's national security mission

University faculty and college students who are looking for a unique research experience that supports America’s efforts to strengthen homeland security should look no further than the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. DHS education programs provide opportunities for students and faculty seeking to make an impact on homeland security related projects at federal research facilities across the country. Participants are guided by mentors who transfer knowledge about the mission of DHS and provide access to stimulating projects that enhance professional development.

Below are links to websites created specifically to provide information about these ORISE programs both for prospective applicants as well as for current research participants and the laboratory staff who mentor them.
