Oak Ridge National Laboratory is suspending all new internship appointments, effective immediately, due to health and safety concerns over the COVID-19 outbreak. This includes any appointments at ORNL in the BTIP Program for summer 2020 program. As of 3.23.20, this does not impact appointments at NREL.
There is a small chance that the suspension of new internship appointments could be lifted if circumstances change, but for now this move will help minimize the risk to visiting students and to ORNL.
