Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships

Program Announcements

The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) Program is now open for applications for the 2024 Summer Term. Applications are due Jan. 9, 2024 at 5 p.m. ET.

Welcome to the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program, a premier Department of Energy internship designed to bring undergraduates into the laboratory research setting at Ames National Laboratory and Iowa State University to work with scientists who are leaders in their research fields. Students from across the country spend either 16 weeks in the fall and spring semesters or 10 weeks in the summer in our SULI program.

Participating SULI students receive a stipend of $650 per week. We provide housing in Iowa State University apartments. We pay up to $500 for student travel to our site.

We focus on your success! Our students receive guidance from PhD scientist/mentors and work in an exciting research environment alongside scientists, post docs and graduate students. In addition, students interact with scientists in diverse research areas throughout the Ames Lab via research talks and tours. Many of students use their research experience to generate journal articles for print in national publications.
