Sandia National Labs NM Partnerships Collaboration Report 2021-2022

UNM/Sandia partner to offer a significant scholarship


Linnea Sands, a now retired partnerships development specialist, identified the need for this Sandia/UNM co-branded flyer and partnered with communication specialists to get it executed in time to be utilized by staff who were attending the National Society of Black Engineers Conference.

The Underrepresented Minority Cohort (URM) at UNM is a program that offers the best of both worlds for engineering graduate students looking to get transformational real-world experience. The URM Cohort offers a paid 2-year scholarship to pursue an engineering graduate degree at UNM in addition to a paid internship at Sandia working in an area related to the student’s thesis. Applicants for the URM Cohort go through a selection process with preference given to students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The Sandia University Partnerships Network produced an electronic flyer for use during the National Society of Black Engineers Conference in March 2022. The flyer contained a QR code that allows attendees and other recipients the ability to obtain more information quickly and easily about this exciting opportunity.
