The Science and Technology division released on January 14 an application for the 2004-2005 class of the Homeland Security Scholars and Fellows. This highly competitive program assists in the development and mentoring of the next generation of homeland security scientists and engineers by supporting students pursuing degree programs at America?s leading universities. Through internships at homeland security venues, many students will focus their studies in areas that support the Department?s mission.

?We are confident that this program will produce talented scientists and engineers that will play a vital role in securing our nation against terrorism,? said Under Secretary for Science and Technology, Dr. Charles McQueary. ?These students will be the foundation that we can build upon in the coming years.?

Applications for the program, which are available on the DHS website ( under ?Research and Technology,? are due by February 19, 2004. The Homeland Scholars and Fellows Program is open to all U.S. students interested in pursuing areas of study that can lead to scientific and technological innovations that can be applied to the Homeland Security mission.

The Program will ensure the future supply of individuals skilled in critical areas such as the life and social sciences and engineering. After graduation, students are encouraged to consider employment offers from the Department, state and local operational offices, and Homeland Security-affiliated laboratories and facilities, and/or related university positions.
