The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) Internship Program supports a mission priority of NNSA to strengthen key science, technology, and engineering capabilities and enhance its career and leadership pipeline. This program also directly aligns to the Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program (MSIPP) mission to create and foster a sustainable STEM-pipeline that prepares a diverse workforce of world class talent through strategic partnerships between MSIs and the DOE/NNSA Enterprise.
The goals of the program are:
Engage students at MSIs in world-class research and operations opportunities within the NNSA enterprise.
Increase awareness of federal career opportunities.
Support success of underrepresented students in STEM and or other fields that supports the NNSA mission.
The mission of the U.S. Department of Energy “is to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.” With a mission focused on discovering solutions to power and to secure America’s future, the DOE is committed to science and innovation; energy economy; security and safety; and management and operational excellence.
Stipends Undergraduate student - $650 per week Graduate student - $850 per week
Virtual Appointments In response to the evolving situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is expected that all appointments will be hosted virtually. In the event travel is authorized, travel reimbursement for inbound and outbound expenses up to $1,000 for participants who live more than fifty miles, one-way, from the assigned hosting site will be provided.
