•            SULI is open to full-time students attending 4-year institutions and community colleges or recent graduates within two years of receiving their bachelor’s degree or associate degree, while CCI is exclusively for community college students.

•            Both programs are stipend-based and offered three times annually in Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.

Three workshops are planned to provide strategies for submitting a compliant application and learn about the internship experience from the voices of CCI and SULI alumni.

Two workshops will introduce the program and application process for each program followed by the final workshop which will review the application process for each program before highlighting the research opportunities and internship experience at the DOE National Labs through an alumni panel discussion.
