Army Science & Engineering Apprenticeship Program, RI Arsenal – SEAP

The Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) is a Federal Government’s engineering and scientific organization located on the Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois.  We are accepting applications from high school students for a Department of the Army Educational Outreach Program known as the Science and Engineering Apprentice Program (SEAP).  This 2019 summer program encourages students to participate in real-world Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) work activities under the guidance of Government mentors.  We offer students the opportunity to work alongside engineers and technicians in our local Arsenal office to gain experience while becoming familiar with Department of Defense STEM careers and the potential job opportunities that await them in the future.

During this eight-week summer program, the students will work with ECBC mentors to gain “hands-on” experience in a professional setting.  At the end of the SEAP apprenticeship, students will prepare and present final reports based on their experience.  All students who successfully complete their apprenticeship are eligible for an educational stipend.

We have offered this program to local high schools in the past with great success.  This year our program will run from June 17, 2019 through August 9, 2019.

The application deadline is February 28, 2019.
