Applications are currently being accepted for the Fall 2021 Term of two undergraduate internship programs offered by the DOE Office of Science: the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program and the Community College Internships (CCI) program. For the internship, students will conduct research and technical projects at national laboratories. The application deadline is May 27, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. ET.
SULI and CCI offer undergraduates opportunities to conduct research or technical projects, respectively, at DOE National Laboratories and facilities under the mentorship of laboratory staff scientists and engineers. Both programs also offer students professional development opportunities. These programs are intended to encourage undergraduates to enter scientific or technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences.
SULI is open to students attending 4-year institutions and community colleges, while CCI is exclusively for community college students. Both programs are stipend-based and are offered three times annually. The Fall Term SULI program is 16 weeks long, while CCI is 10 weeks long. Some laboratories offer flexible schedules to CCI participants.
Additional information about SULI and CCI is accessible from the homepage of the Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists. Resources include lists of participating laboratories, eligibility requirements, application guidance, Frequently Asked Questions, and highlights featuring former interns.
