Summer Internship/Fellowship at the Office of Workforce Development for Teachers & Scientists (WDTS)

The Office of Science / Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications to its 2016 Summer Term internship/fellowship programs. These programs, which offer opportunities for direct engagement in scientific research and technology featuring specialized instrumentation; large-scale, multidisciplinary efforts; and/or scientific user facilities, are available for undergraduate students enrolled at community colleges and/or four-year institutions, and for visiting faculty. Selected students or faculty participate at one of 17 DOE Laboratories/Facilities, receive stipends, and may qualify for travel and housing assistance.

Applications for these competitive programs must be completed and submitted online by 5:00 PM ET on January 8, 2016 (including all required application materials and recommendations). The 2016 Summer Term placements are for 10 weeks duration in a May to August timeframe.

 The three programs accepting applications are:

·         The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students (including community college students) to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences, under the guidance of laboratory/facility staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.  More information about SULI and access to the online application is at

·         The Community College Internship (CCI) program encourages community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences at the DOE Labs.  Students work on technologies or instrumentation projects or major research facilities related to ongoing R&D programs. More information about CCI and access to the online application is at

·         The Visiting Faculty Program (VFP) seeks to increase the research competitiveness of faculty members (including community college faculty) and their students at institutions historically underrepresented in the research community in order to expand the workforce vital to the DOE mission areas.  In this program, selected university/college faculty members collaborate with DOE laboratory research staff on a research project of mutual interest. Faculty member participants may invite up to two students (one of which may be a graduate student) to participate in the research project. Applicants establish their collaborations with laboratory research staff in advance of applying and must submit a co-developed research proposal as part of the application. Students apply separately at the invitation of the faculty member. More information about the VFP and access to the online application is at

The SULI, CCI and VFP programs are sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science / Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists. The Department of Energy’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.

Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, now offered in Georgia, Indiana, and New Jersey, recruits current seniors, recent grads, and alumni with backgrounds in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to teach in high-need schools.

As a WW Teaching Fellow, you will have extraordinary opportunities: innovative, world-class teacher preparation, a full school year of experience in real-world classrooms, and ongoing mentoring support.  In addition, Fellows receive a generous stipend ($30,000-32,000) to complete a master’s degree program.

It’s not too late to apply for our November 30th deadline: you can start your online application here. Our final deadline to apply for the 2016 program is January 31, 2016, but it’s best to apply early!

Curious about the advantages of our clinically based program?

Woodrow Wilson Fellows … begin co-teaching in a high-need school from day one of the fall semester to the end of the academic year.  A licensed teacher and a Woodrow Wilson Fellow work collaboratively, sharing responsibilities for co-planning, designing curriculum, formal and informal assessments, and teaching–which benefits students in the STEM classroom. … The co-teaching experience for our Fellows has worked extremely well.

–Dr. Delphina (Del) Hopkins-Gillispie, Director of Licensure at Valparaiso University

My cooperating teacher has helped me learn about how the classroom functions, gives me advice on any situations with students, and has helped me adjust to a new school. This experience … has been the part of the program that has taught me the most about what teaching in a high-need school is really like.

–Martin Barker, 2014 Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellow at Valparaiso University
