  • Student Internships Now Available To Support Tribal Energy Projects

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy, with support and coordination from Sandia National Laboratories, is accepting applications for the College Student Internship Program. There is currently one part-time, year-round internship available for winter 2021 through spring 2022.

Current full-time undergraduate and graduate students who are familiar with Native American culture and tribal issues are encouraged to apply. Interns will work with Sandia's renewable energy staff, along with Native American tribes interested in tribal energy development. The internship program offers the opportunity for instant immersion in project planning and development activities working directly with experienced internationally recognized energy experts. The work may involve local travel, including field visits to tribal energy project sites.
