The Virtual Intern Experience

NREL is excited to be able to offer virtual internships. We see our interns as the workforce of the future, helping us drive our mission—and the nation—forward. Even remotely, our interns:

  • Gain access to state-of-the-art systems and seasoned mentors
  • Strengthen skills through professional development
  • Hear from world-class experts and top executives during our lecture series
  • Learn about our lab buildings and the work going on by taking virtual tours
  • Have fun and engage with other interns by joining clubs and resource groups.
