The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) administers more than 150 science education programs on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy and other federal agencies. The diversity of these programs enables individuals—whether undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral, or faculty—to conduct collaborative research with national laboratories or at one of more than a dozen federal agency partners.

The following research experiences illustrate how current and previous research participants have taken an active role in world-class science. Many of these internship, fellowship, and research appointments shaped their futures and professional goals.
