One option is for the LLNL mentor to pay for the student’s summer salary, if they are able. This option helps support the student’s additional expenses while onsite. Alternatively, the student can come through the professor’s consortium funding, but there is not currently a mechanism for supplementing their pay here to manage the additional housing costs, so it may be a financial hardship for the student. Contact your POC to pursue either of these options.
A third option is for the student to apply to one of the summer internships through an LLNL institute program. These programs accept a cohort of students who attend seminars and networking events together for a portion of the time, and spend the remainder doing research with their LLNL mentor. If a student is accepted into one of the institute programs, they receive a stipend through the program that can help with cost of summer housing.
Lastly, there are some more general internships (funded through LLNL) that are posted by groups who need specific projects worked on over the summer. More information on internship programs can be found here.
