Middle and High School Internships
DEPARTMENT OF NAVY RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY: The Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program for High School Students
Application deadline: October 31, 2017
The 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 294 high school students this year. Participating students spend eight weeks during the summer doing research at 25 DoN laboratories.

BE WISE Application Process to Open Soon!
Application Period: October–November 2018
BE WiSE engages young women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning experiences in collaboration with the region’s research, industry and academic institutions. BE WiSE goals are to:
- Stimulate young women’s interest in STEM through interactions with professionals
- Increase participants’ opportunities and knowledge of STEM fields of study
- Develop a community of young women (grades 7–12) engaged in science learning through out-of-school activities
- Sustain interest and involvement through alumnae and ongoing participation for women in science at all levels
BE WiSE invites girls in grades 7 and 8 to Science Overnights to explore their interest in science, hosts events for BE WiSE members in high school to encourage their selection of more courses in science and math, and exposes these girls to adult women scientists who share their knowledge and passion and experiences with science and engineering careers.
BE WiSE selects girls from all across San Diego County and has sustained contact with over five hundred girls over the past 14 years.
Girls must apply for BE WiSE in grades 7 and 8. The application period is October–November of each year. For more information on the program, please visit http://www.rhfleet.org/be-wise or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Fellowships
Deadline: April 30, 2017
ACM SIGHPC and Intel are launching a new international program of graduate fellowships in computational and data science.The goal of this new graduate fellowship is to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science, including women as well as students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field. The program will support students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world. Submissions are open now for the ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Fellowships. Nominations close April 30.
Interested faculty advisors and students can find more information on the fellowships, including a description of the online nomination process, at http://www.sighpc.org/fellowships.
