SULI - Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships

ImageWelcome to the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program, a premier Department of Energy fall, spring and summer internship designed to bring undergraduates into the laboratory research setting at the Ames 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 $500 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.
