Applications are now open for the Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP), a paid summer research program for high school students administered by the American Society for Engineering Education.
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are selected to spend eight weeks working alongside professional engineers and research scientists on real projects at one of 27 Department of Navy labs around the country. New interns receive stipends of $3,300, returning interns receive $3,800 for the summer.
The goals of SEAP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further their education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of the Navy’s research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the Department.
In 2015, SEAP provided competitive research internships to over 265 high school students.
Transcripts, references, and application must be received no later than 5:30 p.m. EST Novemeber 30, 2016.
