SULI Program Overview

The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students and recent graduates to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the Department of Energy (DOE)Ā laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one ofĀ 17 participatingĀ DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supportingĀ the DOE mission.

The SULI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Scienceā€™s, Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOEĀ laboratories/facilities.

Applications for the SULI program are solicited annually for three separate internship terms. Internship appointments are 10 weeks in duration for the Summer Term (May through August) or 16 weeks in duration for the Fall (August through December) and Spring (January through May) Terms. Each DOE laboratory/facility offers different research opportunities; not all DOE laboratories/facilities offer internships during the Fall and Spring Terms.
