Howard University Enters a New Partnership With the U.S. Army

Historically Black Howard University in Washington, D.C., announced a collaboration with the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) to establish an Education Partnership Agreement. As part of the agreement, Howard University faculty will utilize CCDC assets to provide training and research opportunities to students in areas such as artificial intelligence, electronic devices, and unmanned machinery. They will also have access to defense laboratory equipment.

Howard University undergraduates will have the opportunity for research internships. Students who are interested in defense laboratory assignments will be awarded academic credit for their work on defense lab research projects. Students also will be eligible for graduate and postdoctoral fellowships.

“To solve the Army’s toughest technological challenges, we rely on the talent and expertise of bold, forward-thinking STEM professionals from a variety of backgrounds,” said Maj. Gen. John George, CCDC commanding general. “Our partnership with Howard University reaffirms our commitment to invest in the success of our nation’s future innovators, who in turn support the success of our nation’s military.”
