Graduate Student Research Opportunities

ORISE offers summer internships and scholarship programs each year for grad students in science and engineering

For students who already have their bachelor’s degree and are currently pursuing an advanced degree in a science or engineering discipline, a graduate level research position can open doors for advanced studies. ORISE sponsors more than 50 graduate student research programs across the United States.

Current Opportunities for Graduate Students

In addition to the full slate of scholarships, internships, and other research positions ORISE sponsors for graduate students, there are also a limited number of positions with immediate availability for students who have already earned their B.S. and are currently pursuing advanced degrees.
