Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories (LLNL) administers a number of college student internships to help ensure a highly skilled, diverse work force for the science and technology challenges of LLNL's national security research. LLNL's national security mission is funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)/Defense Programs. Internships support the recruiting needs for the Livermore Lab's National Security programs. Internship projects target college students (undergraduate and graduate) in four major disciplines (i.e. 'critical skills' core competencies): chemistry & materials science, computer science, engineering, and physics.
