NoVEL Pathway

The NoVEl pathway

The NoVEL Program provides support to STEM undergraduate students to prepare to pursue internships and careers at National Research Laboratories. You will receive a stipend for your full participation in the program. Priority for acceptance to the opportunity is offered to students who intend to pursue future graduate education in a STEM field.

A primary objective of this program is to encourage diversity in the STEM fields, and to stimulate consideration of careers in National Research Laboratories, especially at Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL).
