... Geoscience Education (GeoEd) Program -- The program supports projects to improve formal and informal earth science education, to increase the number of students pursuing earth science, to broaden participation of underrepresented groups, and to engage the public in Earth system science.
From page 16...
... Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) Program -- The program encourages undergraduate students to pursue STEM careers by providing research experiences at DOE laboratories, as well as providing professional development workshops and scientific lectures and seminars.
From page 17...
... -- The goal is to increase the number of trained graduates, particularly from underrepresented communities, in STEM fields directly related to NOAA's mission; and to strengthen collaborative research between NOAA scientists and researchers at MSIs. EPP components include scholarships and internships at NOAA facilities for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as competitive awards for Cooperative Science Centers to build capacity in mission areas at MSIs.
