CNS welcomes summer interns
CNS welcomed 47 summer interns pursuing bachelors’, masters’, and doctoral degrees to Pantex and Y‑12. The students, who will be on site until August, represent 24 universities and have a variety of backgrounds: engineering, chemistry, biology, and physics. Six CNS organizations are hosting the interns, and 21 are part of NNSA’s Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program or other university partnership programs and consortia.
“The intern program at Pantex and Y‑12 helps ensure that the workforce of tomorrow understands the critical role our sites play in global security,” said Nicole Eminger, acting senior manager of Diversity and Talent Management. “These students spend 10 weeks in the program performing important hands‑on work, growing professionally, and getting an idea of how their future careers could look. In addition, they go back to their campuses across the country as advocates, sharing their experiences and the extraordinary work that goes on here.”
Interns will spend 10 weeks at Y‑12 this summer working across various disciplines and building skills for their future careers.
