SEED Internship Program
Make sure to read the SEED internship tips and info sheet
Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI), the entrepreneurship program at Argonne National Laboratory, created a new paid internship program to empower Chicagoland Minority-Serving Institutions’ (MSI) students to pursue and excel in STEM careers. The goal is to seed and grow STEM interest beyond the classroom and into the career realm.
The Students for Energy & Entrepreneurial Development (SEED) intern program offers students an exciting way to combat climate change through business internships with a STEM focus paired with CRI’s clean energy and climate technology startup companies. The internship supports a comprehensive pipeline for students to make an impact through science careers.
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 in a wide-ranging business capacity? If you’re passionate about making an impact, we invite you to apply! Note: You must be a U.S. Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident to be a SEED intern.
