Spring 2021 may seem far away, especially now when things are so unpredictable. But still, it is good to look beyond what is happening now and be optimistic that great opportunities will be available. One great opportunity for community college students is the Department of Energy Community College Internship program (DOE CCI). The Community College Internships program seeks to encourage community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences at the DOE laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 16 participating DOE laboratories. They work on technologies or instrumentation projects or major research facilities supporting DOE’s mission, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers. The Spring 2021 program is now open for applications. Take a chance and see what the DOE laboratories are all about!
