The Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP), provides an opportunity for students to participate in a paid research experience 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.

Description of the program:

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.

The internship has a duration of 10 weeks.

For undergraduate students the stipend is $7,690.00 and for graduate students $10,250.00. Stipends will be paid on the 15th of each month, May-July.


•Applicants must be U.S. Citizens. Dual citizens may be accepted at some labs, but not all. Interested students should contact the individual lab to determine if dual citizens are accepted.

•Applicants must be a Junior, Senior, or Graduate student to apply. If you are a sophomore you may still apply but you must have reached Junior status before starting at the lab.

•Applicants should have majors relevant to the research interests of the laboratories.
