The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) is inviting all current and former ORISE interns, fellows and mentors to join its online platform, ORISE Connections, for networking, expanding knowledge and sharing STEM experiences by visiting: oriseconnections.org.
ORISE Connections, with 1,250-plus members in just a few months, also provides a convenient way to access professional development opportunities, online and in-person events, and the latest news and upcoming happenings for the ORISE community.
Every year, ORISE connects thousands of college students, post-graduates and faculty with paid internship and fellowship opportunities at premier national laboratories, scientific facilities and research centers and universities across the United States.
“ORISE had received feedback that both alumni and current participants want a place to network with each other, find resources and share experiences,” said Outreach and Engagement, STEM Workforce Development Manager Leslie Fox. “So, our team developed the ORISE Connections virtual platform to achieve this. It’s designed for both alumni and current participants and mentors and makes it easy for them to build and revisit connections across STEM disciplines and research interests, start conversations about shared interests, explore exclusive resources and keep up with ORISE news and events. We invite all current and past interns, fellows and mentors to join today!”
