Description:
The SRAP is a research-based educational internship experience for students who are members of ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering (Hispanic, African American, or Native American in ethnic origin).

The students must have an expressed interest in and potential for educational opportunities and careers in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.

The program is designed for students who live within daily commuting distance of the Laboratory in Richland, Washington and attend high school in Benton, Franklin, Yakima County or Columbia School District (Burbank).

The program provides an eight-week summer research experience that includes four days each week assigned to a scientist-mentor in a specific research area and time each week devoted to educational, career, and leadership development activities involving laboratory demonstrations, field trips, team building, communications, and career awareness workshops.

Applicants must be at least 16 years of age at the time they begin their appointment, be a current junior or senior in high school, and be of Hispanic, African American, or Native American ethnic origin.
