On Tuesday, October 27, the Department of the Navy launched Naval Horizons, a new Naval Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) education and outreach program. It is a virtual effort designed to inspire college students by raising awareness of the real-world science and technology challenges of today. The program will introduce students to cutting-edge topics impacting the Navy and Marine Corps through online videos covering nearly 20 research areas. Students learn about naval topics by watching the videos—and submitting a report on the state of the art and a futurist vision of the Navy and Marine Corps in 2040. The first 3,000 submissions to meet the evaluation criteria will be awarded a $200 stipend.
To be eligible for the Naval Horizons program applicants must be:
- Community College students
- Undergraduate students
- Graduate students
- Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Majors
- Must be enrolled at an accredited college/university
- Must be a U.S. citizen
