In addition to the federal agency’s contribution to education through the Department of Education and through a multitude of funding programs, including NSF, and in addition to R&D on technologies to assist training and education, most of the federal labs engage in projects and programs that support learning in schools, universities and their own agencies. These programs and projects come in many forms, including educational partnerships, fellowships, summer research appointments, post-doctoral positions, in-house seminars, guest researcher initiatives, student volunteer programs, tours, job shadowing days, sponsorship of selected educational activities, HBCU programs, apprenticeships, young faculty investigator programs and in-house academic programs. Most of these initiatives are described on the websites of the individual agencies and laboratories.
