My son just got into the SEAP program of the Office of Naval Research (the email notification was sent on Jan 7th evening). He is a sophomore. He said he would get a stipend of $4,000, which I think is pretty nice for a high school student.
Is this a very competitive program? He intends to apply to a few other summer programs/internships (but I don’t know the details), and the SEAP offer has a deadline of January 18 to accept, which is before other applications are due.
Your advice would be appreciated.
