Lawrence Livermore Summer Internship Program (LLSIP)
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in Livermore,
California holds an annual national competition for the prestigious Lawrence
Livermore Summer Internship Program.
Involvement in world-class research provides interns with
a set of experiences that support their education and career goals. Typically,
students gain hands-on experience and the opportunity to apply learned theory
to real life problems.
In this capacity, students are making genuine contributions
to program goals. Students publish and co-author papers as well as
present their research at conferences and their schools. Yet another
benefit is a pipeline to employment, strengthening collaborations
with academia as well as other DOE laboratories and employers partnering
in collaborative research.
While students spend approximately 80% of their time
conducting science research with their mentor, they can spend up to
25% of their time participating in special supplementary educational
activities designed to provide students with an introduction to research
that supports LLNL’s mission. These activities include technical
lectures, tours and socials, etc., as well as required health, safety, computer and
project specific training. In addition, students receive instruction
in preparing a scientific poster for display at the annual poster
symposium, and may also be asked to give a technical presentation.
Recruit recent graduates and first year graduate students
pursing scientific studies who are majoring in science, math, engineering,
or technical fields involving biology, chemistry, computer science,
