ATK Aerospace and Florida A&M University enter a NASA Mentor- Protégé Agreement.
On Sept. 17, NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center hosted a Mentor-Protégé signing agreement between ATK Aerospace Systems and Florida A&M.
The NASA Mentor-Protégé Program provides incentives for prime contractors to assist eligible small businesses and HBCUs in enhancing their capabilities to perform as prime contractors to the government entities or subcontractors with other large businesses. This is the second Mentor Protégé Agreement that ATK has signed and will assist in mentoring.
"We look forward to working with Florida A&M, They are a great institution and the students bring an incredible amount of enthusiasm about the space program," commented Bill Boynton, ATK SLS PM.
The agreement between ATK Aerospace Systems and Florida A&M marks Marshall's seventh Mentor-Protégé agreement -- four of which involve historically black colleges and universities.
