Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program Internships

 

This is an announcement of the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM) Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program (MSIPP) Internships for 2017. The MSIPP Internships is a program to promote the education and development of the next generation workforce in critical science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM) for full time students currently enrolled at an accredited Minority Serving Institution (MSI). These programs assist current missions of the DOE efforts in environmental management. The MSIPP Internships is designed to provide an enhanced training environment for the next generation scientists and engineers by exposing them to research challenges unique to our mission.

Internships will run for approximately 10 weeks during the summer, and will be performed at one of the DOE national laboratories. Interns will complete research projects aligned with ongoing DOE efforts. Students will also be involved in enrichment activities provided by the host laboratory. These activities may include laboratory and site tours, professional development seminars, workshops, lectures, and even social or off-site activities.

Participants will be compensated by either a stipend or salary, commensurate with cost of living at the location of the host laboratory.

To be eligible for the MSIPP Internships, applicants must:

1) Be currently enrolled as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student at an accredited MSI,

2) Be working towards a STEM degree,

3) Have an undergraduate cumulative minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale,

4) Be a United States citizen, and
