June 8 – internship starts
August 14 – internship ends
In the Engineering Undergraduate Internship Program, engineering undergraduate students join engineers at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory for 10 weeks in the summer providing valuable, practical experience as an engineer at a National Laboratory. The program aims to increase the number of people from underrepresented groups in the energy workforce.
Applicants must apply online, providing a transcript and the contact details for two reference letters.
Participants are offered a stipend of $500 per week. Housing and travel are not covered. Participants will attend a week-long course in plasma physicsat the start of the program, and will deliver an oral and a poster presentation of their project at its conclusion.
To be eligible, applicants must:
- be enrolled in a four-year college or university
- be enrolled in relevant STEM courses
- be sophomores or juniors with a 3.0 grade point average or above on a 4.0 scale
- be eligible for work in the United States
- be able to travel to and from the laboratory
It is strongly recommended that students have:
- some experience relevant to engineering design, analysis or fabrication
- a strong interest in engineering and technology
