URA Announces 2023 Undergraduate Women in STEM Interns

May 26, 2023 | Featured News, Fermilab

Five outstanding women enrolled in a STEM undergraduate program will spend their summer at Fermilab as part of the inaugural URA-Fermilab Undergraduate Women in STEM Internship. During the program, interns will work with Fermilab’s various divisions supporting ongoing projects including the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (LBNF/DUNE), Proton Improvement Project II (PIP-II), Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment and the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider Accelerator Upgrade (HL-LHC AUP), and Superconducting Quantum Materials and Systems (SQMS).

Interns will spend 10 weeks working under the direct leadership, guidance, and supervision of Fermilab scientists, engineers, computing professionals, technicians, and staff across all laboratory directorates performing hands-on research. Interns will attend an undergraduate lecture series, present their findings, and write a research project report. In addition, the cohort will meet with mentors and advisors to grow their professional networks, take part in engaging and inclusive intellectual discussions, directly benefit from the laboratory resources, and participate in professional development and social engagement activities.

The program will start in late May/early June and end in August 2023. This is the inaugural year for the internship program funded by the Universities Research Association in coordination with Fermilab.
