Awards: Naval Science Program

nsa_GROUP1Level: Students in grades 9-12; those from lower grades also eligible for recognition. Awards: Certificates of recognition

The Naval Science Awards Program

NSAP is a U.S. Navy and Marine Corps program that encourages American students to develop and retain an interest in science and engineering.

NSAP recognizes the accomplishments of students at eligible regional and state science and engineering fairs and the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in producing and presenting quality science and engineering projects.

Teachers can visit the NSAP Website to gain informaton; register an eligible science fair; or sign up to volunteer as a NSAP judge or presenter.


The Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsors NSAP for the U. S. Navy and Marine Corps. ONR coordinates, executes, and promotes science and technology programs of the Naval services through universities, government laboratories, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations. Fostering an academic interest in Naval-relevant science and engineering from high school through post-doctoral levels is of great importance to ONR.

Science Fair Eligibility:*

Regional and state science and engineering fairs at which two or more high schools are represented are eligible. Senior level projects from students in grades nine through twelve must be represented. Junior level projects from students in grades eight and below may also be represented. All regional and state fairs desiring eligibility must be registered with the program.

*Any final decision concerning the eligibility of a science and engineering fair that registers with the Office of Naval Research will be made by the Education Program Manager.

Who is eligible for certificates and awards?

High school students in grades nine through twelve, competing as individuals, are eligible for certificates and awards. Award recipients must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

In fairs that include middle school students in grades eight and below, these individual students’ projects will be reviewed. They are eligible for separate certificates of accomplishment. No monetary awards are issued to middle school students.
