High School Internships


Idaho National Laboratory internships are about gaining experience - at work and in life. INL interns get paid to work on real-world projects under the guidance of mentors who are experts in their field and have the opportunity to solve real-world problems under the tutelage of INL technical experts.


During the eight-week program, students work on a specific project and learn to apply science, mathematics, engineering, and technology concepts that reinforce and complement what they are studying in high school. The program is designed to build student's confidence and deepen their knowledge of science, mathematics, engineering and technology and introduce them to careers in those fields.

  • Students that are at least 16 years old and enrolled in an educational program as defined by the state.
  • Students that are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.
  • Students that demonstrate an intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, leadership, and self-motivation for improvement are accepted into the program.

What you need to apply

  • A copy of your high school transcripts
