The Department of Energy has several opportunities for internships and
fellowships. If you qualify for one of the programs listed below and
are interested in working in my laboratory please
- The Office of Science, Graduate Fellowship Program (SCGF).
This program offers partial tuition support, an annual stipend for
living expenses, and a research allowance for full-time graduate study.
- Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI).
This program offers a 10-16 week internship for Spring, Summer or Fall.
- Community College Institute Internships (CCI).
This program offers a 10 week summer internship.
Brookhaven National Laboratory Fellowships and Programs
- Graduate Research Internship Program (GRIP).
This program offers masters and Ph.D. students on site accommodation at
BNL to foster research relations between BNL and their home institution.
- BNL High School Research Program (HSRP).
This program offers 11th and 12th grade students aged 16 or over a 6
week summer internship.
This list contains publications that have a recognized contribution from
an intern. Where an intern is listed as a co-author
