The CCS Fellows Program

In 2021, there is an immediate opportunity for fellows interested in the intensive study of the initial and pending development of private CO2 storage projects in the California Delta region. Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL), in conjunction with the Livermore Lab Foundation, is launching an inaugural 2021 summer internship program. The new CCS Fellows collaborative will examine real and timely issues related to CCS and opportunities in California with the hope that CCS best practices can be applied nationwide. The interns will receive mentorship from LLNL technical experts and LLF project managers and communications professionals.

Up to four upper-level or graduate students at UC Merced, University of Texas at Austin, or Oklahoma State University will be selected for the initial 2021 cohort. This paid internship will be remote in Summer 2021. To receive more details on this opportunity and/or to apply, please contact Sally Allen, Executive Director at Livermore Lab Foundation at The deadline to inquire is March 30, 2021.
