About REAP

The U.S. Army’s Research & Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP), an initiative of the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) administered by the Academy of Applied Science (AAS),  is facilitating an RFP process to identify educational institutions and mentors to participate in 2014 and 2015 REAP.

REAP is a summer apprenticeship program for high school students from underserved and underrepresented populations. Student apprentices receive an educational stipend of $1500, and are required to work a minimum 200 hours for 6-8 weeks duration during the summer months.   University mentors may receive a stipend of $1,000 to support the cost of materials and other supplies in support of the student apprentice. Student apprentices contribute to the research activities in a university laboratory research setting under the supervision and guidance of a qualified mentor.  This one-on-one, hands on  research experience is intended to develop student understanding of the process of research; to spark their curiosity and understanding of work in the sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM);  and to broadly contribute to the future pipeline of talent capable of contributing to the nation’s future STEM workforce. 

More information about REAP is available here.

About UNITE
The U.S. Army’s UNITE program, an initiative of the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) administered by the Technology Student Association (TSA) is facilitating an RFP process to solicit entities to serve as 2014-2015 UNITE host sites.

UNITE is a pre-collegiate, pre-engineering summer program for talented high school students from underserved groups  in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The program is designed to encourage and help prepare students to pursue college-level studies, and ultimately careers, in engineering and related STEM fields.

2014-2015 UNITE  will provide a two year summer experience for a single cohort of students.  As participants in UNITE first in their rising 10th grade summer and then again in their rising 11th grade summer, students will receive continued support and advancing enrichment designed to best help them achieve their goals of higher education and careers in STEM.

More information about the UNITE program is available here.
