Sponsor Information

The DOE Scholars Program is managed by the Office of Human Capital in collaboration with ORISE.  The DOE Office of Human Capital is responsible for providing guidance and direction to sponsoring DOE offices and ORISE; and for providing oversight and support of all program activities.

ORISE executes the essential, behind-the-scenes administrative aspects of the DOE Scholars Program that allow the sponsoring office/hosting facility to focus on its mission. ORISE is responsible for promoting the programs; recruiting applicants; making appointment offers; arranging inbound moves and travel; making stipend and travel reimbursement payments; designing and implementing enhancement and professional development activities; planning events; and offering guidance and mentorship through the participant experience.
