DOE Tribal Internship Program

 

Description

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy offers a college student internship program for current full-time graduate students who are familiar with Native American culture and tribal issues. Interns provide support on Office of Indian Energy-funded projects and assist a cross-disciplinary team to perform specific technical tasks in the field and at DOE's Sandia National Laboratories. Current full-time graduate students who are familiar with Native American culture and tribal issues are needed to support projects funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy. Our student interns assist a cross-disciplinary team to perform specific technical tasks in the field and at DOE's Sandia National Laboratories. Interns will work with Sandia's renewable energy staff and American Indian Outreach Committee, and Native American Tribes interested in renewable systems. The internship program offers the opportunity for instant immersion in project planning and development activities working directly with experienced, internationally recognized energy experts. The work requires travel, including field visits to renewable energy project sites. Sandia National Laboratories will give preference to American Indian applicants who are members of a federally recognized tribe, Alaska Native village, or Alaska corporation (excludes state-recognized tribes, bands or groups, and first peoples of Guam or Hawaii).
