How to Renew a Participant
ORISE appointments are made for a maximum of one year at a time. Appointments may be extended in increments of up to one year, contingent upon EPA recommendation and funding availability.
An extension is initiated by the mentor. A mentor who wishes to extend a participant’s appointment should contact the EPA program coordinator for information on the internal EPA processes that need to be completed for an extension. Once ORISE has received approval of the extension from the EPA program coordinator, we will send the participant a letter with the new appointment end date and any changes to the stipend level.
Participants are required to submit progress reports to ORISE at the time of extension. Please send your ORISE point of contact a one- to two-page report describing your educational experiences of the past year, and the research and learning goals you hope to achieve during the extension period.
