College - STEM
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the safety of our interns and mentors, the STEM internship programs SEAP, NREIP, 3C and CSUMB REU were cancelled for the summer 2020 and severely limited for summer 2021.
For the summer of 2022, we will continue to take every precaution to ensure the wellbeing for our interns and mentors. This may mean limiting the number of interns, imposing age requirements, a late cancellation of the programs and/or anything else deemed necessary.
NREIP — Undergraduate & Graduate Students
The Office of Naval Research’s Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP), provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate university students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.
The goals of the NREIP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.
NREIP provides competitive research internships to approximately 275 college students (200 undergraduate students and 75 graduate students) each year. Participating students spend ten weeks during the summer conducting research at approximately 21 DoN laboratories.

Community College Catalyst (3C) - Undergraduate Students
Working with the award winning Hartnell NASA-CIPA and NSF-sponsored programs at Hartnell Community College, the Naval Postgraduate School matches undergraduate students who excel in science, technology, engineering and (STEM) disciplines with NPS research faculty for 8 weeks each summer for the past 8 years.
Hartnell Community College, a Hispanic serving institution, is among the top community colleges in the country in promoting and achieving success for its underrepresented students in the STEM disciplines.
The Naval Postgraduate School provides graduate research assistant opportunities for these community college students, providing a “kick-start” when the students transfer to a 4-year university.
There have been almost 200 interns, 95% of whom have gone on to 4-year universities to study and earn a STEM degree.
Research Participation Program (RPP) Returning STEM @ NPS students only
Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) supports the U.S. Department of Energy and other federal agencies' mission to strengthen the nation's science education and research initiatives.
After the successful completion of one of the other STEM at NPS internship programs, returning interns may apply for further internships at NPS.

CSUMB - Ocean Science National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates
NPS is a host institution as part of the NSF funded program.
Federal Cyber Service: Scholarship for Service STEM and MONARCH Programs - Graduate Students
NPS' Center for Information Systems Security Studies and Research (CISR) works with graduate students to obtain a master's degree through the Scholarship for Service STEM and MONARCH programs. The programs provide an opportunity to obtain a graduate degree and receive a salary while studying for future civilian government positions with organizations such as the CIA, FBI, NSA, and others.
STEM Program: This program is designed for individuals with a bachelor's degree in computer science, mathematics, physics, and/or engineering. http://www.cisr.us/scholarships-STEM.html
MONARCH Program: This program is designed for anyone with a bachelor's degree in any undergraduate field that has the aptitude and desire to study computer science. http://www.cisr.us/scholarships-MONARCH.html
NPS' participates in the National Research Council Research Associateship Program (NRC RAP) which offers graduate, postdoctoral and senior level research opportunities at federal laboratories. For more details, visit http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/rap/
