ORISE is continuing normal program operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ORISE U.S. DOT opportunities will be offered as long as each individual U.S. DOT office is able to complete the onboard process and ensure a meaningful experience for participants. We encourage you to apply and submit your application as soon as possible. If selected for an opportunity you will be provided with up-to-date onboarding guidance at that time.  Updates will be available on this page as needed.
