Do you know a high school student who is interested in science and
engineering and is looking for an apprenticeship next summer? If so, please
let him or her know about the 2011 Science and Engineering Apprenticeship
(SEAP) Program. Applications for SEAP must be submitted between now and
January 7, 2011. The eight week summer program begins June 20, 2011 and ends
August 12, 2011.
SEAP is an Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsored and funded program.
SEAP gives highly motivated high school students the opportunity to be
exposed to Navy projects and programs. Participants receive hands-on
experience in the fields of engineering, science, and computers in a
research and development and test and evaluation environment. Students
experiment with a technical career and learn about other types of careers
that are available within the Carderock Division. The selected students are
placed in a wide variety of scientific and engineering fields with mentors
who are scientists, engineers, and technicians. Our mentors work with high
school students during the summer to give them a first-hand understanding of
professional methods to foster their desire to pursue college-level training
that will lead to careers in science and engineering.
In order to be eligible for the SEAP program students must be United States
citizens, enrolled in high school, have completed 9th grade, and be at least
16 years of age by the beginning of the program. Participating students
will spend 8 weeks during the summer doing research or working on a specific
technical project. The stipend for students will be $3075 for the 8 weeks,
which will be paid in 2 installments. Returning students will receive $3590
for the 8 weeks.
Interested students must apply online at http://www.asee.org/seap by January
7, 2011. Additionally, student transcripts MUST be mailed to:
