Oak Ridge Associated Universities recently won a five-year contract worth up to $89 million from the Environmental Protection Agency to manage the EPA Environmental Research and Business Support Program, which provides opportunities for exceptional undergraduate and recent bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral graduates to participate in the EPA-sanctioned research and administrative projects.
Through this work, ORAU will recruit and place employees at 13 EPA Office of Research and Development laboratories and research centers across the U.S. These participants in both business and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields will receive hands-on training in real-world settings at these laboratories and research centers while contributing to EPA’s mission, a press release said.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to support EPA’s research and administrative goals,” said ORAU President and CEO Andy Page. “ORAU has a long history of successfully managing large-scale science and education programs, and we are already taking applications for this exciting new program.”
Interested students and recent graduates can learn more about these opportunities and apply for appointments for this program by visiting www.orau.org/epa.
