Morgan State University misses out on $90M Air Force contract

January 25, 2023

Morgan State University has lost the chance to win a lucrative partnership with the United States Air Force that could have brought billions of dollars to Baltimore. The Air Force instead choose to work with Howard University to build a university-affiliated research center, or UARC, to develop new engineering and technology innovations for the military. The Air Force will funnel $12 million a year over five years to Howard to fund faculty, research, and student stipends around tactical autonomy. The university will receive an additional $2 million a year from both the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment and the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering for the center.
