Opportunities

LSMCE provides a curated list of both career and internship opportunities. These opportunities range from semester based to full time positions across all stages in a STEM career.

The STEMUndergrads.science.gov site was established to be the primary source for searching Federally-sponsored opportunities for undergraduate students and undergraduate programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) areas.

The STEMGradStudents.science.gov site was established to be the primary source for searching Federally-sponsored opportunities for graduate students and graduate study programs in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) areas.

Both sites were developed through collaboration between the participating agencies of the White House National Science and Technology Council's Committee on STEM Education (CoSTEM) and Science.gov Alliance and is updated on a regular basis.
