How to Apply

Visit JUMP into STEM to learn more about eligibility requirements and participation rules. Additional JUMP into STEM Challenges will be offered, starting in September.

If chosen by the selection committee, you will be contacted with an invitation to apply to the ORNL-HERE-BTMSIP application for the ORNL summer 2019 internship.

Description

Consider smart/connected solutions for building performance

Engage in the JUMP into STEM online “What if” Challenge, a unique Department of Energy (DOE) Buildings Technology Office student competition series. JUMP into STEM idea challenges are open to university and college students. Students in all disciplines, including architecture, engineering and computational sciences, are invited to participate in considering the key motivators for residential and commercial building owners to manage their energy use.

Awards to Win
During the 2018-2019 student calendar year, there will be a series of JUMP into STEM “What if” Challenges. Eligible students with the winning responses will be invited to participate in a JUMP into STEM Finalist Event to compete for paid summer internships at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Additionally, eligible winners of each challenge may be invited to collaborate on a JUMP into STEM webinar to present on their idea, and considered for future Research and Development (R&D) collaboration.

Selected interns will be appointed full-time for the summer term at ORNL and will be engaged in a research and technology project under the guidance of a laboratory scientist or engineer. Dates are flexible depending on availability and project needs, but a minimum of 10 weeks is recommended. Undergraduates will receive a stipend of $500 per week while graduate students will receive $600 per week. There is a $150 per week housing allowance for participants whose permanent address is 50 miles or more from Oak Ridge, TN and eligible travel to/from the appointment will be reimbursed up to $500.00.

Qualifications

Winning students will be invited to participate in a JUMP into STEM Finalist Event to compete for paid summer internships at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). An ORNL-led screening committee will then determine those that will be invited to apply through Zintellect for the BTMSIP internship.
