Research interns are active participants in major research programs. They conduct 'hands-on' laboratory research, working a minimum of 40 hours per week under the guidance of senior NRL staff. A 10-week planned research outline of assignments and expectations will be given to each intern by their mentor. In addition to conducting scientific research, the interns are provided the opportunity to attend scientific and skill-set seminars on topics including laboratory safety, ethics in science and engineering, job-search and interviewing skills and resume writing. Interns also sharpen their professional skills by being required to submit short weekly progress reports in addition to a final written project report. At the conclusion of the program, students will prepare written reports and make brief presentations describing their summer's work along with an oral presentation of their research.

Successful undergraduate applicants will receive a stipend of $850.00 per week for the ten-week program (not to exceed $8500.00) and a travel allowance of up to $700.00. Graduate students will receive a stipend of $1090.00 per week for the ten-week program (not to exceed $10,900.00) and a travel allowance of up to $700.00.
