    Internships

    WISE (Applications are due December 31st, 2016)
    WISE seeks applications from exceptional engineering students who display evidence of leadership skills and have a keen interest in public policy.


    SULI (Application Deadline is January 8th. )
    Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.


    HERE (Applications due February 1st)
    Higher Education Research Experiences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (HERE at ORNL) provides research opportunities and associated activities for participants at all levels, beginning the term before college entrance through thesis/dissertation research, and higher education faculty.


    Science, Technology, and Policy Program, Office of Energy
    Participants will gain insight into the federal governments role in the creation and implementation of policies that will affect energy technology development; contribute to the implementation of energy policies by applying their scientific and technical expertise to the development of solutions to issues of importance to the DOE; and continue their education and involvement in areas that support the DOE mission either in a technical or policy-related role.


    Policy and Systems Analysis
    The Department of Energy (DOE) Science, Technology, and Policy (STP) Program provides an opportunity for students, postgraduates, established scientists and faculty to participate in programs, projects, and activities for the Energy Policy and Systems Analysis (EPSA) that support the mission of the DOE.

    Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) Summer Internship Program (January 27, 2016, at 11:59 PM)
    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) Summer Internship Program will provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in projects focused on helping DNDO meet its mission of “implementing domestic nuclear detection efforts for a managed and coordinated response to radiological and nuclear threats, as well as integration of federal nuclear forensics programs.” Internships will primarily focus on projects related to Advanced Technology Demonstration programs, or are otherwise in the areas of: Materials Research and Supporting Technology, Advanced Analytics, Nuclear Forensics, Program Management, Radiation Detection, and Shielded Special Nuclear Material (SNM) Detection. Permanent Application Information (To be updated)


    Sandia National Labs
    Many of our research internships can be experienced through technical institutes that encompass a range of disciplines, including cyber security, energy surety, engineering design, and software development. Each institute provides a team to guide and mentor interns in projects aligned with their major or area of particular technical interest. Professional development and social activities supplement project work to create an even more rewarding experience.


    Los Alamos National Lab
    The program is a year-round educational program that provides students with relevant research experience while they are pursuing an undergraduate degree. This educational program is designed to complement the students education with work experience related to their chosen field of study. There are appointments in both the technical and professional fields. Appointments are available for 90-day summer internships with the option to continue working part-time during the academic year. Maximum years in the program are six years for those pursuing a bachelors degree and three years for those pursuing an associates degree.


    Toshiba-Westinghouse Undergraduate Fellows Program (January 31, 2017)
    The Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering is pleased to invite applications for this paid summer research experience from outstanding undergraduate students in engineering, computer science, physics or chemistry with an interest in the nuclear field. Please check out this website for details on what the program has to offer, as well as how to apply online. We look forward to seeing you for a summer at Penn State.


    Scholarships

    ANS scholarship (Deadline February 1, 2017)
    The American Nuclear Society believes in rewarding its members for their academic, services and leadership excellence. To do so, scholarships are granted to qualified student members of ANS Student Sections who have demonstrated a high commitment to the standards set by the Societys constituents.


    Goldwater Scholarship (November 30, 2016 at 12:00 p.m.)
    Selectors seek students who demonstrate a strong commitment to a career in math, science, or engineering; display intellectual curiosity and intensity; and possess potential for significant future contributions in their chosen field. It is expected that Goldwater Scholars will pursue advanced degrees. Students who plan to study medicine are eligible only if they plan a research career rather than a career as a medical doctor in private practice.
