SEED Internship Program
Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI), the entrepreneurship program at Argonne National Laboratory, created a new internship program to empower Chicago college students from under-resourced communities to pursue and excel in STEM careers. The goal is to seed and grow STEM skills beyond the classroom and into the career realm.
The Students for Energy & Entrepreneurial Development (SEED) intern program offers students two exciting ways to combat climate change through either STEM or business internships with CRI’s clean energy startup companies while simultaneously creating a comprehensive pipeline for students to make an impact through science careers.
This program will not only acquaint students with ways to combat climate change through clean energy technologies, it will also provide hands-on science or business experience.
What You Offer
Are you interested to learn how science can address climate change? Would you like to work with a clean energy startup company either in a STEM or business capacity? If you’re passionate about making an impact, we invite you to apply!
What We Provide
We pair you with a CRI startup, based on compatible interests. You’ll have a mentor who designs your internship to fit your skills and interests in clean energy science or business. By the time your internship concludes, you’ll have a work project that frames your internship experience and have gained networking opportunities to continue your path forward with our support.
Internships begin May 31st and will be completed on August 5th, 2022. Learn more about the SEED internship.
