Are you a university researcher or lab looking to help train and develop the next generation of STEM talent? Are you looking to grow and foster relationships with young scientists? If so, the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) is looking for you!

Currently the AEOP is soliciting responses for our upcoming High School Apprenticeships program through the Request for Proposals (RFP) process. The RFP seeks to identify host institutions to participate in the FY2022-2023, two-year program cycle. This unique program offers STEM apprenticeship opportunities to priority populations, helping to inspire and prepare the next wave of STEM professionals. AEOP apprentices work directly with a mentor and contribute to cutting-edge research in the lab. These apprenticeships provide students invaluable experiences and exposure to a laboratory environment furthering them along their STEM journey.

If you are interested in partnering with the AEOP, please click here for the RFP details and information on how to submit a proposal. Proposals are due by 5PM EST, October 29, 2021.

The AEOP High School Apprenticeships program is administered by the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) on behalf of the U.S. Army.  RIT is a member of the AEOP Consortium formed by the AEOP Cooperative Agreement award, a group assembled to provide and/or oversee STEM programs designed to support the goals and mission of the AEOP.  The lead organization for the Consortium is Battelle Memorial Institute, a non-profit research and development organization with a strong commitment to STEM education.
