The Community College Internship (CCI) program seeks to encourage community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) mission by providing 10-week internships at one of 15 DOE laboratories.
Interns work on technologies, instrumentation projects, or major research facilities related to DOE’s ongoing research and development programs, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers.
The CCI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE National Laboratories.
Applications for the CCI program are solicited annually for the 10-week summer, fall, and spring terms. The fall and spring terms also offer a 16-week flexible schedule option.
