Conversations to Remember is a nonprofit dedicated towards combating loneliness and isolation felt by senior citizens.
This opportunity is part of their virtual visit program. This program matches 2-3 college students with residents of long-term care, assisted living, and memory care communities for virtual video visits. The program provides training about the best ways to interact with the seniors, as well as additional support throughout their service. Students are matched based on the times they’re available, with a senior at the same time, and they have a regular, weekly appointment for their visit.
- students volunteer 1-2 hours per week
- a call lasts up to 1 hour (depending on the senior’s attention span and mood on each day)
- students volunteer for approximately 16 weeks
You can read more about the program on the Conversations to Remember flyer and website. Fill out the Volunteer Interest Form to discuss opportunities. Reach out with any questions to Shailey Shah: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The ORISE Visiting Scientist Program (VSP) is an educational and training program designed to connect participants with unique resources at the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) laboratory.
The FBI Counterterrorism and Forensic Science Research Unit (CFSRU) provides technical leadership for the FBI as well as for other law enforcement and intelligence agencies through applied research and development.
What will I be doing? As a participant with the CFSRU VSP, you will have an opportunity to enhance your professional development and increase your research capabilities and contributions by participating in forensic research initiatives utilizing state-of-the-art equipment under the mentorship of CFSRU scientists. The VSP will expose you to a research environment in a high security government facility and provides an opportunity to perform research in areas of interest unique to law enforcement and national security.
Detailed information regarding the research topics and daily tasks can be found on the opportunity listing.
Where will I be located? Quantico, Virginia
Why should I apply? Under the guidance of a mentor, you will perform sophisticated laboratory techniques using emerging technologies, judge the completeness and accuracy of research results, perform statistical analyses on data, and prepare written manuscripts for FBI review and publication in peer-reviewed journals.
The benefits include a competitive stipend and relocation up to $1,000. You will receive a travel allowance of $5,000 per appointment year to cover travel-related expenses to scientific and professional development activities. The initial appointment can be up to one year but may be renewed upon recommendation of FBI contingent on the availability of funds. The appointment can be made on a full-time or part-time basis.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Learn more about CFSRU and apply here.
Applications are currently being accepted for the Spring 2024 term of the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program offered by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science (SC). The application deadline is Wednesday, October 4, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. EDT.
Two informational workshops will be held for SULI. The first workshop will provide an overview of the program’s unique application process and requirements. The second workshop will include a panel discussion featuring SULI alumni.
Through SULI, undergraduate students discover science and technology careers at the DOE national laboratories and gain the experience needed to transition from intern to employment. Interns work directly with national laboratory scientists and engineers, assisting them on research or technology projects that support the DOE mission.
SULI is open to full-time students attending 4-year institutions and community colleges or recent graduates within two years of receiving their bachelor’s degree. The program is stipend-based and offered three times annually in Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.
Ohio State’s Community Medicine MD Track (CMT) is an MD program designed for students who have a firm commitment to practicing medicine in rural communities or smaller cities. The track will not only address the clinical issues relevant to caring for patients in rural and smaller communities, but will also provide extra emphasis on leadership development and community engagement.
The CMT does not limit students to a specialty; instead, it trains physicians who will ultimately specialize in a variety of fields such as surgery, emergency medicine, internal medicine, family medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and obstetrics and gynecology.
Students will spend the first two years of medical school on the Columbus campus and then transition to The Ohio State University at Lima for their third and fourth years, gaining clinical experiences at Mercy Health – St. Rita’s.
CMT students will meet the same objectives required of all Ohio State medical students and will receive their medical degree from the Ohio State College of Medicine. The College of Medicine values diversity and believes its student body will be enhanced by including students with small community backgrounds and/or interests to pursue training at the regional campus in Lima.
There are upcoming virtual info sessions on July 19, 2023 at 4 PM EST and August 16, 2023 at 4 PM EST.
For more information or if you have questions, please email Lori Martensen at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Project BioEYES is a K-12 science education program which provides classroom-based learning opportunities through the use of live zebrafish. The program is designed to foster enthusiasm for science by giving students opportunities to explore science through watching life develop firsthand.
In partnership with the Department of Molecular Genetics and Project BioEYES, MolGen 4581S gives Ohio State undergrads an opportunity to share their passion for STEM with 4th and 5th graders in Columbus schools.
Besides two class gatherings, one at the beginning and one at the end of the course, the class does not meet regularly on campus. Instead, enrolled students will choose 4 elementary school visits throughout the semester that work with their schedule.
Transportation is provided.
Additional information is available in the MOLGEN 4581S syllabus and the Frequently Asked Questions document.
