CCI Program Overview
The Community College Internship (CCI) program seeks to encourage community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences at the DOE laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 15 participating DOE laboratories. They work on technologies or instrumentation projects or major research facilities supporting DOE’s mission, 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 laboratories.
Applications for the CCI program are solicited annually for the Summer Term, and beginning in the 2016 Spring Term, for a pilot semester program. Internship appointments are 10 weeks in duration for the Summer Term (May through August), or 16 weeks in duration for the Spring Term (January through May). Each DOE laboratory offers different technical internship opportunities; not all DOE laboratories participate in the CCI program; and not all DOE laboratories/facilities offer internships during the Fall and Spring Terms.
