Intern Selection

Please note: It is the policy of Workforce Development & Education that interns of Lab relatives may not be placed in same division as Lab relative.

Applications for CCISULI and VFP programs  are open for review online.  Click on "Review CCI, SULI & VFP Applicants Tutorial" button for instructions on how to view applicants for CCI, SULI, and VFP Programs.

Please remember that mentors may not make offers to students directly. Only Workforce Development & Education staff can make offers within DOE's guidelines and constraints.

To preserve the national range of the program, no more than 10% of DOE provided education funds will be expended on summer students from any single institution.

To maintain the undergraduate focus of the program, only 5% of DOE provided education funds will be expended on participants drawn from among "graduating seniors."

Only labs selected as first choice by applicant can make offers the first 20 days (approx.) after applications open for mentor review/offers for CCI, SULI and VFP programs. After which, second choice labs can make offers to all applicants. Consequently, we recommend mentors submit offer requests prior to when second choice labs can make offers, to ensure you don't lose the opportunity to mentor a student to another lab.
