Dozoretz National Institute for Minorities in Applied Sciences (DNIMAS)
Dr. Aliecia R. McClain, Director
The Dozoretz National Institute for Mathematics and Applied Sciences (DNIMAS) was established in December 1985. Its goal is to address the severe shortage of minority scientists by producing graduates who are capable of successfully completing graduate studies in the basic and applied sciences, and of entering occupations in industry, government, and education. Graduates of the Institute will also be capable of entering medical or other professional schools. Successful completion of the DNIMAS program results in a Bachelor of Science in Biology, a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, a Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering, a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, a Bachelor of Science in Optical Engineering or a Bachelor of Science in Physics.
The DNIMAS program is unique. All of its students are supported by full, four-year scholarship/grant aid. It represents a major commitment by Norfolk State University to provide the best possible education in the sciences for highly qualified and motivated students. The program features a three week, pre-matriculation summer session, intensive science curricula, reserved microcomputer labs available for student use, research internships, field trips, projects, career counseling, and seminars.
