From Mike Janney of ORAU:
ORAU administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Program that allow senior scientists, faculty; high school, bachelor’s, masters’ and doctoral students, and recent graduates to enhance their science education experience in projects and activities at research facilities worldwide. Last year, ORAU placed over 9,400 participants in educational research roles across the country.
I am excited to share the following civilian summer research programs with the U.S. Air Force Research Lab, Army Research Lab and the Army Institute for Surgical Research. All opportunities can be located at www.orau.org/maryland. A single application can be utilized to apply to all of these programs and other DoD research opportunities. I am e-mailing institutions across the country in attempt to alert students about the available opportunities. Please share my e-mail with your students and faculty to encourage your students to apply to these great research opportunities. The opportunities that I am e-mailing you about today with be located either in OH, MD or TX at the respective research laboratory. The start dates for each summer program will vary slightly. In addition to summer research opportunities, we have even more opportunities for post-graduates from the BS-PhD level. We will continue to receive additional research opportunities as we approach late Spring, however, the programs listed below wanted to get a jump start on the recruitment process. The application deadlines will vary from one program to the next, but most Selecting Officials will like to start reviewing the applicants following the first of the year. Selected participants will receive monthly stipends for their research participation within each program.
