Graduate student Melissa De Jesus is actively engaged in a project under the National Nuclear Security Administration Minority Serving Institutions Internship Program (NNSA-MSIIIP), which aims to diversify the talent pool within fields critical to national security. Specializing in mathematics, Melissa will present her insights into the program and offer guidance on how to successfully apply for this unique internship opportunity. Drawing upon her current work that focuses on mathematical modeling for nuclear security applications, she will illustrate the kinds of projects and research areas that are typically funded by the NNSA. Melissa plans to shed light on the rigorous application process, including how to draft a compelling proposal that effectively aligns one's academic background and research interests with the NNSA's mission objectives. Her presentation aims to serve as a roadmap for aspiring mathematicians from minority-serving institutions, offering them a glimpse into a rewarding career path that combines academic rigor with national service.
