Cultivating the Future Workforce Through Aid to Higher Education

Contributing to the development of the skills, knowledge and talent of the future workforce is a top priority for Northrop Grumman. We work with colleges, universities and other educational institutions to support curricula, projects and programs that enhance education and drive the advancement of research and technology.

Northrop Grumman’s Aid to Higher Education funding supports private and public not-for-profit, degree-granting colleges and universities accredited by a nationally recognized regional accrediting association or listed in the Higher Education Directory of Colleges and Universities published by the U.S. Office of Education. Grant requests are on an invitation-only basis and should address education-related initiatives that promote the advancement of science, technology, engineering and math at colleges and universities.
