U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) Program
The DOE Office of Science funds the SULI program at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). SULI provides 10- to 16-week summer and semester research internships to undergraduate (sophomore to graduating senior) students in the areas of science, mathematics, engineering, technology, and science policy. Each student is assigned to a Laboratory staff scientist in a specific area of research related to the student's interests and academic major.
A series of educational enrichment and social activities are provided to enhance the internship experience. The SULI program takes place year-round.
The SULI program is designed to:
- Provide a diverse group of highly motivated undergraduate students with direct access to laboratory equipment, facilities, and staff through research experiences that are not generally available on college/university campuses.
- Allow selected undergraduate students to collaborate with laboratory staff in ways that contribute to laboratory research programs and at the same time provide the students with educational experiences that encourage them to study and pursue careers in fields of interest to the DOE.
- Attract a large number of eligible applicants that are varied in gender, ethnicity, and economic backgrounds.
