The Consortium Research Fellows Program (CRFP) is a partnership between the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area and several Department of Defense agencies. The CRFP fosters a strong relationship between the higher education community and DoD.

Students work in Defense settings, become more knowledgeable about research and development, and increase the country's pool of scientific talent. Professors lend their specialized expertise to DoD projects and widen the scope of their research. Government researchers accomplish their goals more efficiently and develop new areas of inquiry. Transfer of technology accelerates. When the higher education and Federal research communities cooperate, everyone benefits.
