Special internship programs

Special Internship Programs are externally funded educational programs that allow undergraduate and graduate students to engage in research, experiments or educational experiences while taking advantage of the Lab’s facilities.

DOE Community College Internships

The CCI program encourages community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences at the DOE laboratories.

DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

The DOE CSGF is open to U.S. citizens or permanent resident aliens who plan full-time, uninterrupted study toward a Ph.D. at an accredited U.S. university. We encourage applications from eligible students in engineering and the physical, computer, mathematical, or life sciences.

DOE Office of Environmental Management-Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program

The DOE EM-MSIPP internship program promotes the education and development of the next generation workforce in STEM for full time students currently enrolled at an accredited Minority Serving Institution.

Those eligible to apply include senior undergraduate students and first- and second-year graduate students focusing their studies on high energy density physics, nuclear science, or properties of materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics.

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research Program

The SCGSR program prepares graduate students for STEM careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories. 

Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship Program

The MLEF program provides opportunities for underrepresented students in the STEM fields to gain hands-on research experience with the DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy.

DOE Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships

The SULI program encourages undergraduate students to pursue STEM careers by providing research internship experiences at the DOE laboratories.
