Internships for Students and Teachers



Each summer Fermilab offers a variety of intern programs for secondary school teachers, high school students, undergraduates and graduate students. Interns have an opportunity to work on projects that support particle physics experiments in areas such as applied physics, engineering and computing. Working with Fermilab scientists or engineers, interns have an opportunity to experience current research methods and study problems of particle physics research. Also, Fermilab offers a few internships in environmental studies, particularly working in hundreds of acres of restored tallgrass prairie. Interns are selected for their outstanding scholarship and their interest in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. To get an idea of the type of projects available, read about the work of some of our former interns.

Another opportunity for undergraduates is Fermilab's Cooperative Education Program. Undergraduates commit to completing a minimum of three semesters or four quarters at Fermilab, alternating periods of full-time study at their schools with full-time employment at the laboratory.
