Your organization can help high school students gain firsthand research experience with AEOP’s Research & Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP)! REAP is a summer apprenticeship opportunity that gives students the chance to conduct research in a real laboratory setting alongside a professional STEM mentor and researcher.

The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) has an open Request for Proposals to identify host institutions to participate in REAP in FY2021. This RFP is for a one-year period with an optional one-year extension.

REAP is administered by RIT, 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.
