The Science and Engineering Apprentice Program (SEAP) is a Department of Navy (DoN) program designed to give high school students interested in science and engineering disciplines exposure to real-world laboratory research.

The goals of SEAP are to encourage participating high school 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 is providing competitive research internships to 300 high school students this year. Participating students spend eight weeks during the summer doing research at 35 DoN Laboratories.
