ORAU Now Accepting Applications for Inaugural ORNL Challenge Program
Applications are now being accepted for the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Challenge Program, an innovative new program designed to give undergraduates an early start on the scientific process and solving real world science problems. The program is a 10-week summer internship that awards winning candidates a competitive weekly stipend, furnished housing, and travel assistance to and from ORNL. Participants will be able to conduct hands-on research under the direction of a scientist or engineer at ORNL.
Eligible applicants must be an undergraduate junior or senior in good standing at a regionally accredited U.S. college or university. Participants are selected based on their ability to derive a solution to a research Challenge Question. The two challenges are “Simulation and Design of Artificial Model Magnets Challenge” and “The ORNL Distributed Energy Research Challenge.”
