Science and Engineering Apprentice Program

The Science and Engineering Apprentice Program (SEAP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during 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 DoN Research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.

SEAP provides competitive research internships to approximately 250 high school students each year. Participating students spend 8 weeks during the summer doing research at approximately 19 DoN laboratories.

Naval Research Enterprise Intern Program

The Naval Research Enterprise Intern Program (NREIP), provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.

The goals of the NREIP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.

NREIP provides competitive research internships to approximately 238 college students (174 undergraduate students and 64 graduate students) each year. Participating students typically spend ten weeks during the summer doing research at approximately 19 DoN laboratories. To participate, a student must be enrolled at an accredited 4 year US college or university and have completed their freshman year before beginning the internship.
