The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 16 participating DOE laboratorieshttp://science.energy.gov/wdts/suli/how-to-apply/selecting-a-host-doe-laboratory/. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.
The SULI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science's, Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE laboratories. Apply online at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/suli/
APS/IBM Research Internships for Undergraduate Women and Underrepresented Minorities: Deadline is February 1
APS and IBM co-sponsor two undergraduate research internship programs; one for undergraduate women and one for underrepresented minorities. The application deadline for both programs is February 1, 2014. The goals of the programs are to encourage women and underrepresented minority undergraduate students to pursue graduate studies in science and engineering. Both internship programs feature salaried positions at IBM research locations that are typically 10 weeks long and provide an opportunity for interns to work closely with an IBM mentor. The undergraduate women internships are at one of three IBM research locations (San Jose, CA, Austin, TX, or Yorktown Heights, NY). The research internships for underrepresented minorities are at IBM Almaden in San Jose, CA. Application information at http://www.aps.org/programs/women/scholarships/ibm/index.cfm (women) and http://researcher.ibm.com/researcher/view_project.php?id=4281 (underrepresented minorities)
