Science & Engineering Apprenticeship Summer Program (SEAP)


May 24 2014

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.

* Acquaint qualified high school students with the activities of Department of Defense laboratories through summer research and engineering experiences.

*Provide students with opportunities in and exposure to scientific and engineering practices and personnel not available in their school environment.

* Expose those students to DoD research and engineering activities and goals in a way that encourages a positive image and supportive attitude toward our defense community.

* Establish a pool of students preparing for careers in science and engineering with a view toward potential government service.

* Prepare these students to serve as positive role models for their peers thereby encouraging other high school students to take more science and math courses.

* Involve a larger percentage of students from previously underrepresented segments of our population, such as women, African-Americans, and Hispanics, in pursuing science and engineering careers.
