The Minority Educational Institution Student Partnership Program offers talented high school, undergraduate and graduate students summer internship positions with the U.S. Department of Energy and its National Laboratories. Positions involve scientific research or a focus on policy, business, and government relations. Internships include lodging, round trip airfare, and student stipends. As program participants, students receive an intensive 8-10 week assignment to "jump-start" their careers and develop their potential for future opportunities within the federal government. Students work side-by-side with leading scientists, engineers, and other top professionals to develop professional skills and enhance leadership capabilities. This year the program will run from Monday, June 1st, 2020 through Friday, August 7th, 2020. Please visit the FAQs page for more details.




Please note that the selection of interns is not premised upon racial factors or preference nor are individuals penalized based upon racial factors. Students from all accredited institutions of higher education can apply and will be considered; however, all applicants MUST be enrolled (full-time) as a student in the fall of 2020.
