Allen University received a grant from the US Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Division. The DOE-NNSA Cyber Security Grant supports a Summer Science Institute which serves as a bridge experience for incoming freshman. The Summer Science Institute prepares participants for college-level mathematics and science and helps ease the transition from high school to college. Math/computer science majors are selected to work part-time as interns in the Allen University Information Technology (IT) Department during the fall and spring semesters. During the summer selected math/computer science majors will have the opportunity to work full-time in the Allen University IT Department, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Livermore, CA), or participate in internships at consortium member schools.
