Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for USA universities and other qualified educational institutions to host a STEM summer program for students. Programs provide mentoring and laboratory and research experience to eligible high school students. Host institutions will be responsible for program marketing and outreach, provision of mentors, student selection, apprentice onboarding and development, and program delivery, management, and administration.

The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) has an open Request for Proposals to identify host institutions to participate in REAP in FY2021.

The Research & Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP) is an Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) effort that provides high school students, especially those from underserved populations in STEM, a summer apprenticeship opportunity at Army research facilities and partner academic institutions. Student apprentices contribute to the research activities in a laboratory research setting under the supervision and guidance of a qualified mentor.

REAP funding must be used in support of REAP apprenticeships and not to supplement a university’s existing STEM summer programs. Universities must ensure that REAP is a free program to all apprentices.
