Environmental Management Internships

The Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program (MSIPP) was created by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Environmental Management (EM). The mission of EM is to complete the safe cleanup of the environmental legacy brought about from five decades of nuclear weapons development and government-sponsored nuclear energy research.

EM’s Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program (MSIPP) offers internships to help develop our future workforce in critically important areas of science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM). We invite you to help us tackle our unique and often unprecedented scientific and technical challenges, which are engaging some of the finest scientists and engineers in the nation.

Program Overview

MSIPP summer internships take place at selected Department of Energy national laboratories and last for about 10 weeks. Interns will complete research projects that are relevant to EM’s ongoing mission. Students will also be involved in enrichment activities provided by the host laboratory. These activities may include:

  • laboratory and site tours
  • professional development seminars
  • workshops
  • lectures
