The NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences aims to provide opportunities to enrich the training of graduate students in the mathematical sciences by providing opportunities for mathematical sciences doctoral students to participate in internships at U.S. national laboratories, industry and other approved facilities. Participation in an internship will provide first-hand experience of the use of mathematics in a nonacademic setting.
ORISE is a U.S. Department of Energy institute focusing on scientific initiatives to research health risks from occupational hazards, assess environmental cleanup, respond to radiation medical emergencies, support national security and emergency preparedness, and educate the next generation of scientists. ORISE is managed by ORAU.
