DHS Homeland Security Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (HS-STEM) Career Development Grants: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) invites proposals from colleges and universities with established homeland security-related science, technology, engineering and mathematics (HS-STEM) curricula in the fields listed below to establish scientific career development awards to students in priority HS-STEM programs of study. DHS intends to establish an HS-STEM Career Development grants program to enable colleges and universities to award scholarships and fellowships to qualified undergraduate and graduate students in HS-STEM disciplines who intend to pursue homeland security professional and scientific careers. Research areas eligible for DHS support for students studying in those areas are: 1. Explosives Detection, Mitigation and Response; 2. Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences; 3. Human Factors; 4. Chemical and Biological Threats; 5. Border Security and Immigration Studies; 6. Maritime, Coastal and Port Security; 7. Infrastructure Protection and Geophysical Applications to Natural Disasters; 8.Emergency Preparedness and Response; 9. Communications, Operations and Interoperability; 10. Advanced Data Analysis and Visualization; and 11. HS-STEM Introductory and Survey Courses preparatory to one of the above areas of study. Institutions may submit more than one application from different departments. DHS intends to give preference to institutions included in the existing DHS Centers of Excellence and other DHS S&T affiliated institutions, for a list see (http://www.dhs.gov/xres/programs) because it is both efficient and appropriate to train the next generation of scientists and HS-STEM professionals through research and education programs already funded by DHS to meet its HS-STEM needs. As part of its mission, DHS S&T is responsible for developing scientific research and technology programs to protect the Nation from terrorist threats and the consequences of natural disasters. DHS S&T is also responsible for supporting United States leadership in science and technology. To ensure homeland security research programs continue into the future, DHS S&T will support grants to qualified undergraduate and graduate students in homeland security-related fields who will use their education and training to become the next generation of scientists and technology leaders. These grants will support the best programs that will train future homeland security-oriented scientists and technologists and ensure their placement in HS-STEM careers.
