Description

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Oak Ridge Institute for Science Education (ORISE) have a long history of collaborating and developing high quality research programs aimed at the early engagement of students to enrich their high school science and math experience.

ORNL and ORISE are continuing this partnership with the announcement of the Next Generation STEM Internship Program (NEXTGENS).  Beginning with a June 2018 pilot program for the high schools in Anderson and Roane Counties in Tennessee, NEXTGENS is expected to provide eligible high school students within a 14-county radius of ORNL the ability to apply for a competitive summer internship at the lab. 

NEXTGENS provides opportunities for rising juniors and seniors attending high schools in Anderson and Roane counties to participate in STEM or STEM-related projects with scientists and engineers at ORNL.  The eight-week internship begins on June 11 and selected participants receive a stipend of $400 per week for 40 hours of participation.
