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.
