NNSA Internship Program administrators will assist students in locating housing near NNSA sites. However, interns are responsible for their own housing costs.
The application review process is competitive. Student applications are reviewed by some of the most highly respected scientists, engineers, technology experts and mathematicians working in these fields today. Those who are awarded internships are privileged to work alongside their colleagues, learning and growing in a professional environment that will positively impact their studies and their careers.
The NNSA is interested in recruiting the brightest and most ambitious students who are ready to test their knowledge by applying it in a formal laboratory or field setting. Each student intern works under the supervision of an assigned mentor. NNSA professionals will guide interns in the use of sensitive materials, modification and maintenance devices and equipment. The NNSA upholds outstanding safety precautions and procedures and interns will be trained to practice these routinely when working in nuclear production, transportation, disposal, or other assignments.
