  • Are you a student looking for a professional opportunity to learn about homeland security related research to enhance your research interests and career goals?
  • Do you want to learn from top scientists and subject matter experts in homeland security related areas?
  • Do you want to network with your peers and members of the academic and scientific communities in government facilities conducting research in DHS relevant areas?

If you answered “Yes”, to the above questions, the HS-POWER program is for you!

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate Office of University Programs sponsors the Professional Opportunities for Student Workforce to Experience Research (HS-POWER) Program for undergraduate and graduate students. HS-POWER is open to students majoring in a broad spectrum of homeland security related science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines as well as DHS mission-relevant research areas.

As a participant in the HS-POWER Program, you will participate in quality research experiences with federal research facilities and other HS-STEM focused entities nationwide either onsite or in a virtual environment. This experience will provide you with a competitive edge as you apply your education, talent and skills in a variety of settings within the DHS enterprise. You will also establish connections with DHS professionals that facilitate long-term relationships between yourself, researchers, DHS personnel and research facilities.

Benefits

  • Stipend: Undergraduate students receive $750 per week and graduate students will receive $950 per week.
  • Travel: A total of $1,000 travel reimbursement for inbound and outbound expenses for participants who live more than fifty miles, one-way, from the assigned hosting site.
  • Housing Allowance: A housing allowance of $400/week is provided to participants who live more than fifty miles, one-way, from their assigned hosting facility and are paying for housing while on site. Alternatively, for those whose appointment is 100% virtual, a $50 virtual allowance will be added.

Appointment Details

  • Appointments will be for 10 consecutive weeks during the months of May-August. Factors such as class schedules, housing availability and facility schedules may be taken into consideration when determining appointment start and end dates.
  • Interns will be assigned to research projects and/or other technical activities under the guidance of a mentor.
  • An appointment involves a full-time commitment of 40 hours per week at the host facility with the HS-POWER participant in residence at the specified location. Virtual appointments may be available for some appointments. 
  • HS-POWER participants are required to have health insurance coverage during the appointment period and to provide proof of this coverage prior to the start of the appointment.

In response to the evolving situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, hosting sites may modify their operation schedules and access to facilities to ensure the health and safety of their entire workforce while maintaining operational effectiveness. Hence, the appointment dates and location are subject to change contingent on host site availability and may result in a virtual placement.

Nature of Appointment

Participants will not enter into an employee/employer relationship with ORISE, ORAU, DHS, or the hosting facility. Instead, participants will be affiliated with ORISE for the administration of the appointment through the ORISE Letter of Appointment and Terms of Appointment.
