The Dr. John H. Hopps Jr. Defense Research Scholars Program continues to advance the core federal and Department of Defense missions of increasing the participation of underrepresented minority students in scientific research and ensuring minority participation in emerging scientific and technological fields. The fourth cohort, an exemplary cadre of competitive scholars, has achieved the distinction of having the highest percentage 87 of Hopps Scholar graduates to gain admission into STEM graduate programs to date. The outstanding achievements and accomplishments of this cohort may suggest that with the proper guidance and support of a research training program such as the Hopps Scholars Program, underrepresented minorities, particularly African American males, will exceed all expectation as they steadily begin to positively impact the number of minorities entering research careers. Their scholarly pursuits, current updates and program highlights since the last report are included.
