The SEAP Application is now open. Please review the Locations page for program dates and participating laboratories – the SEAP program does not provide housing so you should choose a laboratory within commuting distance of your residence. Complete applications (consisting of the on-line application, one or two teacher recommendations, and a transcript) will be reviewed after the closing deadline and notifications of selected students will be made by May 31st.
Deadline to apply is February 25, 2013.
The Science and Engineering Apprentice Program (SEAP), sponsored by American Society for Engineering Education and the Department of Defense, is an eight week summer program for high school students. SEAP is designed so that students can apprentice
in fields of their choice with experienced scientists and engineers.
This opportunity provides students with valuable experience needed
to make informed career decisions. Students apprentice with their
mentors on mutually agreed upon projects. At Army Research facilities,
the students apprentice in a professional research laboratory setting
and learn how their research can benefit the Army as well as the
civilian community. Because of the setting, students are treated
as research assistants rather than just teenagers. First year participants
are awarded an educational stipend of $2000.
The students contribute to the research of
the laboratory while learning research techniques in the process.
This "hands-on" experience gives students a broader
view of their fields of interest and shows students what kind
of work awaits them in their future career. The students also
attend demonstrations and go on field trips to learn more about
the inner workings of an Army Research Laboratory. At the end
of the summer, the students prepare final reports and present
their research at a final seminar.
