The Alonzo W. Ashley Internship
Program was named in honor of Al Ashley, who retired
from SLAC in 1999 after 31 years of dedicated and
exemplary service, particularly in the area of
championing diversity in the sciences and engineering.
During his tenure at SLAC, Al pioneered programs that
promoted diversity and encouraged career development for
employees, and career exploration for talented students.
He was a recipient of a 2005 NSF Presidential Award for
Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering
Mentoring in recognition of his outstanding mentoring
efforts and programs that enhanced the participation of
historically underrepresented groups in science,
mathematics, and engineering. Al served as a mentor to
hundreds of emerging scientists and engineers during
their journey to their chosen field.
The Alonzo W. Ashley Internship Program provides five
interns practical experience in mission critical fields
with the expressed objective of bridging education and
professional work experience for underrepresented
groups. These one-year, limited term positions will
provide the participant with valuable experience working
at a DOE National Lab and exposure to world class
science and operations.
Candidates must have completed their undergraduate,
graduate or doctorate program (depending on the
identified position) and be a U.S. citizen or documented
resident alien. Further, their career aspirations must
lie within the scope of employment opportunities
available at SLAC.
