Description: 

Summer Internships in Science and Technology (SIST) offers undergraduate sophomores and juniors majoring in physics, engineering (mechanical, electrical and computer), materials science, mathematics and computer science the opportunity to conduct research with Fermilab scientists and engineers. Eligible students must be enrolled in four-year colleges and universities in the United States. SIST aims to increase the representation of underrepresented groups (Black, Hispanic/Latino, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Alaska Native/American Indian) and women in scientific research and the engineering workforce.

The 12-week paid internship consists of a work assignment, an academic lecture series and a final report presented orally to Fermilab staff and submitted to the laboratory in writing. There are no grades or quizzes.


SIST supports efforts to increase the numbers of underrepresented minorities studying and working in scientific research and engineering. Members of underrepresented groups, including but not limited to African Americans, Hispanics, Alaska Natives, American Indians, and women, are strongly encouraged to apply.
