ORAU launches new app for STEM internships, fellowships, and research

College students, recent grads and postdoctoral students now have a mobile tool to find and apply for hundreds of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) internships, fellowships, research opportunities and more.

It’s all thanks to a new app launched by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU). This app, called the ORAU Pathfinder app, was designed to help current and future researchers.

According to the app’s website, some of the ways it can be used include:

  • Search and apply for internships, fellowships, and research opportunities
  • Manage applications and accept offers in Zintellect
  • Receive important program notifications and information
  • Learn about exclusive ORAU educational and professional development events
  • Enhance your skills with ORAU Learn online modules

“We wanted to provide a platform for ORAU interns, fellows and others to connect and be able to stay connected to ORAU on their mobile devices,” said ORAU Director of Research Programs J. Scott Miller.

In a release, ORAU said the app “helps those interested stay engaged, connected and informed during their experience at ORAU and beyond, and the app can be used to search and apply for opportunities, learn about exclusive ORAU events, manage applications, accept offers, access a variety of STEM career resources and more!”
