Lincoln Laboratory serves as the scientific advisor to the Reagan Test Site on the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Staff members who accept field-site assignments at Reagan Test Site typically serve two- to three-year tours, and they and their families become part of the site’s community. The amiable relationship enjoyed by the Laboratory staff and the local community prompted the initiation of the Marshallese Outreach program, developed to enrich educational and life experiences of the Marshallese people.

The Marshallese Outreach Program provides a scholarship to a Marshallese graduating senior pursuing a career in engineering, math, or science.
