Historically Black Colleges and Universities & Minority Institutions

Lockheed Martin Assists HBCU/MIs

Lockheed Martin Corporation is assisting Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Minority Institutions (MIs), and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) through subcontracting opportunities, technology transfer, cooperative education programs, and other collaborative initiatives. These initiatives assist us in meeting our DoD goals and allow our scientist and engineers to advance new technology.

HBCUs/MIs and TCUs are often untapped resources where mutual technology interest can produce valued partnerships for Lockheed Martin, our small business suppliers and the community. It strengthens the infrastructure of participating institutions and provides opportunities for increased numbers of underrepresented minorities studying, graduating, and pursuing advanced degrees and careers in the fields of science, engineering, and mathematics.
