2017 REAP Application

The Research and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP) provides opportunities for high school students from historically underrepresented and underserved populations. Students gain hands-on work experience in scientific research and development programs on a university level. REAP students are exposed to real world scientific research and are able to see themselves making a living as scientists and researchers. Selected students are awarded a stipend for their summer research experience in a university lab.
The REAP Experience is designed to:

  • Motivate students toward a career in science, mathematics, or technology.
  • Expand students’ background and understanding of scientific research.
  • Engage students’ active participation into the philosophy and objectives of scientific research.
  • Expose students to science experiences not readily available in high school.
  • Introduce students to the real world of research in these fields.
  • Partner students with faculty mentors to support current and future professional growth and development.
