The Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) is a consortium of over 100 colleges and universities. One of its missions is to operate the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) program for Federal Facilities. The mission of the ORISE program is to serve as a Catalyst for Science and Education by conducting programs that broaden the base of scientist and engineers and give participants research experience in their related field of study. Through Internships, Scholarships, Fellowships, and Research Appointments, ORISE conducts programs in fields focusing on scientific initiatives to research health risks, medical technology, assess environmental cleanup, manage wildlife, respond to radiation medical emergencies, support national security and emergency preparedness, and educate the next generation of scientists. ORISE has been administering research participation programs since 1946.
