Naval Research Enterprise Internship Progream

By John PeponisComments Off on Naval Research Enterprise Internship Progream


The Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research 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 provided competitive research internships to approximately 590 college students last summer. Participating students spend ten weeks during the summer conducting research at approximately 36 DoN laboratories.

NREIP’s Online Application closes on November 30, 2016! Apply Here!

National Science Foundation funded Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) will offer a summer (June 13-August 18) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in 2017 at University of Washington at Seattle. Students in the program will have the opportunity to participate in innovative research at the neural interface, as well as to attend special sessions on ethics, communication skills, laboratory safety and other selected topics. (CNSE REU)

At the end of the 10 week program students will present their work to the CSNE community in a research symposium.  Details about the program and application materials can be found at:

There are many other universities that offer REU experiences during summer and you can search for them here.

Interested students should email the contacts listed for each site directly. These programs are excellent experience for anyone but especially students who are interested in graduate research. Most programs provide a stipend as well as support for travel and housing.
