Resources for University Students and Graduates

Explore resources that help strengthen and support the STEM research experience

Whether you are an undergraduate, graduate student or postdoc, early-career professional development is important to establishing yourself as an expert. The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education provides various resources to address the career planning needs of all research and non-research participants.



ORISE recognizes the crucial role that mentors play in the personal and professional development of the next generation of STEM. These videos feature a few of our mentors across the federal departments and agencies that offer internships and fellowships through ORISE who were gracious enough to talk about their experiences and expertise. The stories they tell offer a glimpse of the inspiration they instill, their commitment to life-long learning, and their passion for “shaping the future of science.”
