Students entering Grade 10 through those graduating 12th grade are eligible to apply for this apprenticeship program, with apprenticeships available to students as young as 15 years old and stipends are provided after the program has completed. For younger students, the Gains in the Education of Mathematics and Science (GEMS) is a summer STEM enrichment program for middle and high school students, featuring various STEM related hands-on activities. These camps are available at participating Army research laboratories and engineering centers across the United States. Don’t miss this opportunity to jumpstart your STEM career!
