Computational Physics Student Summer Workshop

Los Alamos National Laboratory's X Computational Physics Division, in cooperation with other related divisions including Theoretical Design and Computer, Computational, and Statistical Sciences is pleased to sponsor the 2022 Computational Physics Student Summer Workshop. The workshop seeks to bring to the Laboratory a diverse group of exceptional undergraduate and graduate students from within the United States for informative, enriching lectures and to work with its staff for 10 weeks on interesting and relevant projects that may culminate in articles or conference presentations.

Workshop Overview

Students are organized into teams of 2 working under the guidance of one or more mentors. Each participant is awarded a fellowship that typically ranges from $8,000 to $13,000 based on academic rank (junior, senior, 1st year graduate student, etc.). Lectures, Teamwork, and Mentoring are integrated to help you learn about computational physics and enhance your career. Shared technical goals help you build connections for the future. Generous Fellowships are awarded to support your educational and research efforts while in the summer workshop. Social Events and Tours enhance the team-building experience, creating lasting memories and professional relationships.

Note: The Summer 2022 internship is tentatively scheduled to take place in person. If the current health pandemic causes the workshop to be held remotely, student projects will still be offered along with a series of career-enrichment talks and virtual social hours.

Application Guidelines

The workshop is open to U.S. Citizens who have completed at least one year of college or university. Applications must be submitted online. As part of the application process, you will need to provide a cover letter and resume (your school may have a career office that can help with these), and transcripts (unofficial transcripts are fine), as well as the name and contact information for one person who will submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf.  If you are accepted, you will be required to submit official transcripts. An additional part of the application is to select your top three choices for your research project this summer.

Applications are now open for the Summer 2022 workshop and will be accepted on a rolling basis until January 21, 2022.

Fellowship Stipend

Participants will receive a fellowship stipend, the amount to be determined based on your current academic rank.  The stipend will be paid in three installments over the course of the summer.  You will be responsible to cover your own travel, food, and housing.  Housing is in short supply in Los Alamos during the summer, but we will do our best to provide resources to find housing.


For the 2022 workshop, there will be 12 different projects for students to choose from. Students will work in pairs and will be assigned various mentors that will oversee their project. The mentors are all established scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
