Partnerships for Innovation
When it comes to advancing your skills in one of the many science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines, hands-on opportunities to do real-world research are invaluable. With a network of colleges and universities across the nation and a wide range of federal agencies as sponsors, Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers a broad range of internships, scholarships, fellowships, and research experience programs.
Want to know what opportunities are out there waiting for you? Take a look at the pages below to discover research appointments currently available that apply to your academic or professional status.
If you are a student, recent graduate, or faculty member interested in learning about the hundreds of stimulating research experiences sponsored by one of ORAU’s world-class science and engineering partners, visit our extensive online catalog.
The catalog describes academic fellowships and scholarships, research experiences, sabbaticals, and internships funded by a wide range of government agencies. These science education programs are administered by ORAU—many of them through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE).
You can even use the catalog as a career development and planning tool. For example, if you’re an undergraduate interested in learning about internship opportunities but you’re also interested in pursuing a graduate degree, take some time to see what’s available at the graduate level. Doing so will help you focus on furthering your education and staying competitive with your peers.

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) is assisting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the development of a database of faculty, researchers and professionals with demonstrated accomplishments in research areas related to EPA’s mission. These individuals may be asked to serve as reviewers for the EPA Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Graduate Fellowship Program.
The STAR program is open to master’s and doctoral students pursuing degrees in environmental fields of study. The STAR program encourages the development of the next generation of scientific and technical talent in the United States.
ORISE will be managing the review of applications in collaboration with the EPA. If you would like to be considered as a potential reviewer, please take a moment to register. Reviewers will be contacted in January to confirm their selection and to verify their availability to serve as a reviewer during the scheduled review period.
If you have questions regarding the review process, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
