The 2013 class of Minority Educational Institution Student Partnership Program summer interns stand with Deputy Director of Minority Education Annie Whatley (front left), Secretary Ernest Moniz, and Dot Harris, Director of the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity.
The Department of Energy is powering diversity and inclusion in the energy sector through our Minority Educational Institution Student Partnership Program, an exceptional paid opportunity for students managed by the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity. High school, undergraduate and graduate students in a variety of majors may apply for the Minority Educational Institution Student Partnership Program. A stipend, housing and roundtrip transportation are provided.
Selected students may be assigned to work at the Department's Headquarters in Washington, D.C. or at one of our 17 National Lab or field sites around the country. This includes exciting places like Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California where part of Star Trek: Into Darkness was filmed. Our interns can also work at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, home of one of the world’s fastest supercomputers.
The Department of Energy's mission is to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions. Interns here gain valuable experience in energy programs and research projects that can make a difference for all Americans.
Applications are due by March 31, 2014. Visit http://minorityinterships.energy.gov for more information on this opportunity.
