High School - 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.
Office of Naval Research’s Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.
The goals of SEAP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further their 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.
SEAP provided competitive research internships to over 265 high school students in 2018. Participating students spent eight weeks during the summer doing research at 25 DoN laboratories.
The Naval Postgraduate School will host hosted 33 high school students during the summer of 2019.
