Welcome to the Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP), funded by the Army Educational Outreach Program!
The U.S. Army's Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP) is an eight-week summer program for high school students in which students apprentice in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields at Army research facilities. Click here for a list of participating locations.
SEAP students work with their mentors, Army scientists and engineers, to gain “hands-on” experience in a professional research setting – where students are treated as research assistants rather than teenagers. SEAP provides students with the opportunity to learn how STEM research can benefit the Army as well as the civilian community. Students gain a broader view of their STEM field of interest and learn what kind of work awaits them in their future career.
At the end of the SEAP apprenticeship, students prepare and present final reports based on their research experience. All SEAP students who successfully complete their apprenticeship are awarded an educational stipend ($2,000 for first-year students).
SEAP apprenticeships are open to US citizens and US permanent legal residents. (NOTE: some sites are restricted to US citizens due to security guidelines.) High school students must be 16 years old to participate. Additional age requirements may be specified by location.
Parents/students are responsible for arranging travel to/from SEAP. SEAP is a non-residential program. Students coming to the SEAP program from out-of-state need to arrange their own housing. The SEAP program is considered a ‘local’ program so there is no locality or housing benefit given to the student in addition to a stipend.
General questions about SEAP should be directed to the Army SEAP Help-Desk by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or toll-free phone (855-592-3556).
