The Lee Teng Internship in Accelerator Science and Engineering is an exciting education and research opportunity for students majoring in physics, engineering or computer science at U.S. universities/colleges. Students must have junior standing at the time of application. Outstanding sophomores may also be considered. 

During the eleven-week summer internship program (May 29 – August 10, 2018) each student works closely with a Fermilab or Argonne National Laboratory mentor.  The program includes a full scholarship to attend the two-week U.S. Particle Accelerator School sponsored by Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.  Additionally, interns are paid an hourly wage, as well as receive travel and lodging allowances.

All applications are received by Fermilab. Interns are placed at either Fermilab or Argonne National Laboratory, as determined by their interests and qualifications.

Internship support includes:

  • Hourly wage based on a 40-hour work-week:
  • U.S. Particle Accelerator School – paid full tuition
  • Shared housing
  • Shared use of a rental car (for Fermilab interns only)
  • Paid airfare and ground transportation to/from the Laboratory (for students outside Chicagoland)



  • 18 years of age by the program start date - May 29, 2018.
  • Junior academic standing and enrollment in university/college in the United States at the time of application. Outstanding sophomores at the time of application, may also apply.



  • Accepted program participants must:

-    submit an Official university transcript.

-    have medical insurance while at Fermilab.

-    provide identification, as well as evidence of authorization to work in the United States.

-    respect, understand and value individual differences that embody the principles of diversity.

-    abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations.


Foreign nationals who are not US citizens and were born in, are citizens of, or represent or have ongoing affiliations with Iran, Sudan and Syria must provide additional information to be considered for access to Fermilab. Advanced federal review and approval is required before an individual may visit or receive an identification badge for unescorted access at a Department Of Energy (DOE) facility; this process can take many months and possibly longer than a year.

Diverse people. Diverse jobs. Great science.

Fermilab and Argonne National Laboratory are Equal Opportunity Employers.

Minorities/Women/Disabled/Veterans are encouraged to apply.
