OEP college students

The undergraduate and graduate internship programs provide more than 350 students and professors from universities around the country each year the opportunity for an authentic research experience. Interns will have access to the Lab’s facilities and leading scientists in their fields to take on scientific challenges and gain experience working in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields.

  • Community College Internship (CCI)

    The United States Department of Energy (DOE) Community College Institutes are conducted at National Laboratories across the country. Each offers a ten-week summer research and educational training experience for highly motivated community college students.

  • G.R.E.En. Institute

    The mission of Gaining Research Experience in the Environment is to promote teaching, learning, and research in all aspects of the environment for students from kindergarten through graduate school. 

  • Mini-Semester Program

    This program is designed for undergraduate students in STEM. The objective of this one week program is to offer exposure to modern day science through science and technology exploration.

  • New York State Collegiate Science & Technology Entry Program Mini-Course (CSTEP)

    The Mini-Course offers New York State CSTEP students an opportunity to participate in a five day introductory mini-course in Bioinformatics to be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) during the school winter break.

  • Nuclear Chemistry Summer School (NCSS)

    The Division of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology of the American Chemical Society sponsors summer schools for undergraduate students in nuclear and radiochemistry funded by the U.S. Department of Energy

  • Science Communication Internship

    Brookhaven's science communication interns interview and write stories about researchers in wide-ranging fields, from nanoscience to nuclear physics.

  • Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI)

    The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has established undergraduate research internships at national laboratories across the country. These internships are run for 10 weeks during the summer and for 16 weeks during the fall and spring semesters. Internships are offered in areas such as physics, biology, chemistry, environmental and atmospheric sciences, engineering, computers applied mathematics and nuclear science.

  • G.R.E.En. Institute

    The mission of Gaining Research Experience in the Environment is to promote teaching, learning, and research in all aspects of the environment for students from kindergarten through graduate school. 

  • Graduate Research Internship Program (GRIP)

    The Graduate Research Internship Program (GRIP) pairs graduate students with a Brookhaven National Laboratory scientist on a mutually agreed upon project, which will enhance the interns' research skills and may lead to scientific publications and may support their graduate thesis or dissertation.

  • Nuclear Nonproliferation Safeguards and Security Summer Course (NNSS)

    This summer course is designed to give graduate students a sound understanding of the foundations of the nuclear nonproliferation regime and U.S. programs and policies developed to meet the emerging nuclear proliferation threats to our security.

  • Science Communication Internship

    Brookhaven's science communication interns interview and write stories about researchers in wide-ranging fields, from nanoscience to nuclear physics.

  • Science Graduate Student Research Program (SCGSR)

    The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission
