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.

For more information, including deadlines and application details visit the SEAP website.

Minors must be from 50 miles of the city of Monterey; must reside with parent or legal guardian during internship.  The home address on the application will be used to determine eligibility.
