Student Training in Applied Research (STAR) Undergraduate Internship

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


To meet the demands of our world's future energy needs in the clean energy transition, the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) is reaching out to the best and brightest engineering and applied science students. Minority serving institutions are home to many of these students, and NREL invites them to participate in an enhanced educational and internship experience. The Student Training in Applied Research (STAR) undergraduate internship launched in the summer of 2022 with 13 students from two historically Black colleges and universities (HBCU), two Hispanic-serving institutions (HSI), and one Tribal-serving institution (TSI). NREL is rolling-out year two and aiming for full-scale operations in year three that will create an opportunity for 50 of the nation's top minds to conduct meaningful research on clean energy and become part of a community who will be the future leaders of our clean energy transition.
