ORISE is continuing normal program operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ORISE EPA opportunities will be offered as long as each individual EPA 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.
On this site you will find information about these educational and training programs, designed to engage students and recent graduates in the environmental research performed at EPA. Whether you are interested in joining the programs, are a current participant, or are an EPA employee sponsoring or mentoring participants, our site has valuable information for you. We welcome you to learn more about our programs by selecting the category that best describes you.
