Each year, over 200 students apply for a SCEC Internship. Every application is reviewed by a committee composed of SCEC staff, scientists, and internship alumni. Applications are rated for suitability to both the SURE and USEIT internship programs. Even if you did not apply to a particular program, we may rate you as a good candidate for it!

SOURCES program is taking applications! Acceptances to the SCEC SOURCES Internship Program will be sent in March. Applications will still be accepted until all remaining spots are filled. If you are offered a SCEC internship, you will have up to 1 week to confirm and accept the appointment. Please make sure you have provided an email address that you check at least once per day

SURE program is suspended for Summer 2021. For every SURE project, 3-10 candidates are selected as finalists. Some candidates may become finalists on more than one project. The project mentor then reviews the applications and ranks them. We make an offer to the candidate who is ranked most highly by the mentor. The next 1-3 candidates become alternates.


UseIT program TBD for Summer 2021. For USEIT, 15-40 students are selected as finalists. Then, the finalists are ranked a second time, based on our need to bring a diverse mix of talents and knowledge onto each USEIT team. The top 15-25 students receive offers. The remainder are designated alternates.
