Graduate Internships and Fellowships STEM research internships and fellowships available for graduate students across dozens of disciplines

If you are a graduate student looking for the ideal setting to conduct your thesis research or if you’re a master’s student preparing to pursue your doctorate, a graduate-level STEM internship or fellowship position can open doors for advanced studies.

ORISE offers summer, fall and spring internship programs at locations across the United States for graduate students in STEM disciplines to participate in laboratory experiences to expand their expertise beyond the traditional university setting.

If you are looking for a short-term experience like a summer internship, ORISE has a diverse collection of opportunities in a variety of research areas. If a STEM internship or fellowship opportunity during the academic year is more ideal, there are also a number of positions with immediate availability for students who have already earned their bachelor's degree and are currently pursuing advanced degrees.
