Interested in conducting undergraduate research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory?
DOE is currently seeking undergraduate students for paid internships at ORNL for the 2015 spring term of the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship Program. The program at ORNL is administered by ORAU, through a contract with DOE to manage ORISE.
Science Education Programs
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and more than a dozen other federal agencies rely on the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) to help meet future needs in critical science and technology areas through the recruitment and training of our nation’s next generation of scientists and engineers.
To meet these pressing demands, ORISE assesses current science and technology labor needs and then designs and implements programs that meet the unique goals of each agency. Research participants are recruited nationally, including special outreach to Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other Minority-Serving Education Institutions.
ORISE matches these participants with research opportunities at national research facilities and administers the appointments. Completing the process, ORISE provides follow-up analysis and evaluation of the programs.
A highly qualified and diverse group of students and faculty are recruited for ORISE science education programs. As a result, ORISE continues to maintain very high placement rates for both women and underrepresented minorities.
