DOE Community College Internships (CCI)

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science funds technical appointments in technologies or instrumentation projects or major research facilities for community college students at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). The CCI provides 10-week summer technical internships to fully enrolled community college students. Each student is assigned to a Laboratory staff scientist or technical advisor in a specific area of technical training experiences related to the student's interests and academic major. Students spend 80% of the time in their technical area and 20% of their time in leadership development and career-enhancement activities designed to assist in scholastic and vocational endeavors.
