Developing candidates for NOAA and NOAA mission-related workforce

Providing post-secondary education and research capacity through competitive awards

There are four NOAA CSCs that advance education and collaborative research, as well as support students and build capacity in NOAA-mission sciences at Minority Serving Institutions. Each CSC is led by a Minority Serving Institution and partnered with a NOAA line office. Together, the CSCs include 24 university campuses.
