Paid Summer Internships with the Department of Energy

Which of your students needs a great summer internship to boost their confidence and bolster their resume?  I know from my experience as a community college dean that a personal invitation often gives students the courage to reach for something that they might not otherwise have considered, and I am hoping you will think of students who will benefit from a great summer internship and encourage them to apply.  Here are the details on this opportunity:

Program:  Minority Serving Educational Institute Student Partnership Program (MEISPP)

Majors:  All majors 

Open to: US citizens who are undergraduates, graduate students, recent graduates (since Spring 2022) at/from eligible MSIs

What: Opportunities at DOE offices and labs all over the U.S. (though mostly with DOE HQ in Washington, DC)

Dates: May 20 – August 9; extensions into academic year possible

Mode: In-person and virtual opportunities

Stipends: $14,000 – $31,000, depending on participation mode and educational level.

I will be holding several webinars to share about the program and provide tips on the application process. You and your students are welcome to attend:
