The ORISE Research Participation Programs at the CDC are designed to provide a flow of scientists and engineers into the CDC to participate in current research and development activities and studies, and related technical projects. In addition, the program will link the CDC's technologies with the capabilities of the academic community. By supporting this program, the CDC will enhance the educational programs offered by academic institutions, strengthen the scientific and technical manpower base, transfer its knowledge and technology to the academic community, and support a growing national commitment to science education.
The ORISE Research Participation Programs at the CDC are structured to meet several objectives. Under the program, postgraduates, college and university faculty, and students are provided opportunities for hands-on participation in research and development, and related technical activities at the CDC.
To be eligible for the programs,
(1) a postgraduate participant must have received a college degree within three years of the appointment date in the program,
(2) a student participant must be enrolled in an accredited U.S. technical institute, college, or university,
(3) a faculty participant must be a full-time faculty member at an accredited U.S. college or university.
