Naval Opportunity Awareness Workshop

This is a past event.

Thursday, August 31

FIU’s Modesto A. Maidique campus

The 2023 Naval Opportunity Awareness Workshop (OAW) will be held in-person from August 31 - September 1 at FIU’s Modesto A. Maidique campus.  

The OAW is the Department of the Navy (DoN) Historically Black Colleges and Universities/Minority Institutions (HBCU/MI) Program’s premier event for outreach and engagement of Minority-Serving Institutions.  In direct alignment with the Program’s vision, mission, and strategic plan, the purpose of the workshop is to provide the HBCU/MI community with first-hand information about research, fellowship, and internship opportunities that span the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Naval Research and Development Establishment (NR&DE).  In addition to expanding awareness of opportunities, the OAW is strategically structured to encourage direct interaction between HBCU/MI students, faculty, administrators, and defense agency program directors, managers, and coordinators.
Additionally, a special workshop just for students is scheduled on August 30, which will focus on internship and scholarship opportunities.
