ORISE appointments are generally made for a maximum of one year at a time. Appointments may be extended in increments of up to one year, contingent upon project needs and funding availability. The maximum length of time a participant can spend in the ORISE program is five years from his/her initial start date.
An extension is initiated by the mentor. Once ORISE has received approval of the extension, and any necessary funding information, we will send the participant a letter with the new appointment end date and any changes to the stipend level.
