In the Engineering Undergraduate Internship Program, engineering undergraduate students join engineers at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory for 10 weeks in the summer providing a 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 competitive stipend,  housing at the Princeton University dorms, and travel to/from Princeton. Participants will attend a week-long course in plasma physics at 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 eligible for work in the United States

It is strongly recommended that students have:

  • some experience relevant to engineering design, analysis or fabrication
  • a strong interest in engineering and technology
