DOE Office of Science: Autumn 2024 Internships

Applications are currently being accepted for the Fall 2024 term of the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program offered by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science (SC). The application deadline is Wednesday, May 22, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. ET. 

Two workshops are planned to provide strategies for submitting a compliant application and to learn about the internship experience from the voices of SULI alumni.

Through SULI, undergraduate students and recent graduates discover science and technology careers at the DOE national laboratories and gain the experience needed to transition from intern to employment. Interns work directly with national laboratory scientists and engineers, assisting them on research or technology projects that support the DOE mission.

SULI is open to full-time students attending 4-year institutions and community colleges or recent graduates within two years of receiving their bachelor’s degree. The program is stipend-based and offered three times annually in Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.
