SMaRT Internship Program

Eighteen undergraduate students from across the country have been here this summer working side-by-side in the labs with University of Tennessee, Knoxville faculty and grad assistants, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers.

SMaRT Internship Program

Many of UT’s faculty work in conjunction with Oak Ridge National Lab and contribute to the world-class research that is being done there. The Student Mentoring and Research Training program (SMaRT) seeks to further promote research and utilize our unique partnership with ORNL by funding multiple paid 10-week undergraduate internships that focus on ORNL-related research with a UT faculty member.

About the Program

This research experience is an eleven-month commitment from February to December that is comprised of a training period in the spring, a full-time paid internship in the summer, and a reporting period (presentation of your research) in the fall.

During the summer internship component, students will work alongside a UT faculty mentor in an ORNL-related lab on UT’s campus or at ORNL. Applicants must choose to do research within one of ORNL’s six main research divisions:
