NAVAL RESEARCH ENTERPRISE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013

The Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP), provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.

The goals of 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 29 DoN laboratories.

This ten-week intern program is designed to provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in research, under the guidance of an appropriate research mentor, at a participating Navy laboratory.

Evaluation Criteria

NREIP interns will be selected based upon academic achievement, personal statements, recommendation, and career & research interests.

Award duration and stipend

The internship has a duration of 10 weeks.

For undergraduate students the stipend is as follows: Sophomores receive $5,400.00.  Juniors and Seniors receive $8,100.00. Graduate students will receive $10,800.00.

Stipends will be paid once a month, May-August.
