Deadline Approaching for Fall Term: Apply for DOE Undergraduate Internships

Published: 23 March 2022

The Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists, within the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science, is currently accepting applications for two undergraduate internship programs.

For both programs, applications for the fall 2022 term (August through December) are due Thursday, May 26, 2022, at 5 p.m. Eastern time.

The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program encourages the pursuit of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers by providing research opportunities at DOE laboratories/facilities. Selected undergraduate students and recent college graduates, with guidance from laboratory/facility staff scientists or engineers, work on research supporting the DOE mission.

In summer 2021, SULI interns helped scientists from Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York prepare for the TRacking Aerosol Convection interactions ExpeRiment (TRACER). The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility is conducting the TRACER campaign from October 2021 through September 2022 around Houston, Texas. Before TRACER’s launch, the Brookhaven interns dug into existing data sets to better understand the weather, clouds, and precipitation in the Houston area.

The Community College Internships (CCI) program provides technical training experiences at DOE laboratories for community college students. Similar to the SULI program, CCI interns receive guidance from laboratory staff scientists or engineers as they work on technologies, instrumentation projects, or major research facilities supporting DOE’s mission.

For more information about the CCI and SULI programs, including eligibility requirements and how to apply, go to the Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists website.
