DoN Labs Offer Student, Faculty Programs

The Patuxent Partnership reminds that several student and faculty programs are available at various Department of Navy laboratories.

Student internship opportunities have the goal of encouraging students to pursue science and engineering careers, bolstering their skills through mentoring and hands-on participation in naval research, and building their knowledge of DoN research and technology efforts. Faculty opportunities encourage participation with naval engineers and scientists in areas of mutual research interests.

Student Programs

Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program — SEAP is an 8-week paid summer internship program that provides an opportunity for high school students to participate in research at a DoN laboratory during the summer. The application process and timeline can be found at here. SEAP’s online application process generally closes by November 1.
