Intern Benefits

  • A competitive rate of pay and travel-expense reimbursement if you live more than 50 miles from Sandia.
  • A full-time mentor in a related technical or business discipline who will work closely with you to make sure your internship is a rewarding experience.
  • Networking and research collaborations with top scientists/engineers and other student interns.
  • Academic credit (in certain cases). Co-op or internship offices at your institution can help you determine if academic credit is available.
  • Opportunities to participate in workshops, seminars, brown-bag lunches, tours of Sandia, social activities, and symposiums.
  • Discount tickets for local attractions and public transportation.
  • Medical benefits (excluding dental and vision) for year-round undergraduate and graduate interns — as well as their dependents — not already covered by other medical plans.
  • Use of the employee assistance program and on-site health clinic, credit union, fitness centers, and Sandia/California massage therapy services.
  • Professional-development opportunities. Interns contribute to Sandia's missions by working on real-world, challenging projects. Their research findings may be showcased through summer symposium posters and presentations (Sandia/California), presented at national conferences, and/or published in scientific journal articles.
