Idaho National Laboratory accepting internship and graduate fellowship applications

The Idaho National Laboratory is currently accepting applications for internships and graduate fellowship positions.

Idaho National Laboratory hires hundreds of students from universities around the country and the world each year to work at the lab under the guidance of skilled and talented mentors. These internships enable students to collaborate with experienced scientists and engineers in order to develop innovative solutions to challenging, real-world projects. Internships support the laboratory’s three mission areas of nuclear energy, energy and environment, and national and homeland security.

Idaho National Laboratory’s internship program has been recognized as one of the five best energy internship programs in the nation by Vault Magazine.

The majority of internships are in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, such as nuclear engineering, chemistry, computer science and physics. However, the national laboratory also offers internships in fields such as business, marketing, communications and logistics. An Idaho National Laboratory internship builds confidence, introduces students to possible career fields, and complements what they are studying in school.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Enrolled full-time student status at an accredited U.S. college or university.
  • Ability to pass a background check.
  • Minimum of 3. 0 cumulative GPA.

Foreign national students may be eligible for internships if they obtain a J1 visa or attend an accredited U.S. university or college, and they can obtain a U.S. work authorization (Curricular Practical Training or Optional Practical Training).

Idaho National Laboratory internships include a nationally competitive wage that is based on the number of credits completed, combined with the degree program. Eligible interns are provided holiday pay and many internships offer travel reimbursements along with a generous housing stipend.
