Come Work for Us! Paid Summer Internships for Talented Students

Diversity is our nation’s greatest strength and a valued aspect of our work at the Department of Energy. College students from across the United States have interned with the Office of Environmental Management (EM) through the Minority Educational Institution Student Partnership Program (MEISPP).  Applications are now open for 2013.

Come work for an office that has its roots in the historic Manhattan Project. EM is the world’s largest nuclear cleanup program, and 64 students have interned with EM since 2008 through MEISPP. The paid 10-week summer internship, which is coordinated by the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, offers talented undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work at the Department of Energy and its national laboratories. MEISPP interns have worked at EM sites in Washington, D.C., Tennessee, Ohio, South Carolina, Maryland and Washington state. Housing and roundtrip airfare are also provided.

Students pursuing a variety of social science, business, engineering and science degrees can apply for the MEISPP program and be placed in programs throughout the Department of Energy. Applications are due March 31, 2013. Visit http://minorityinterships.energy.gov for more information on this fantastic opportunity.
