NIH OITE: Summer/Postbac/Graduate Programs
The NIH Summer Internship Program (SIP) accepts high school, undergraduate, graduate and professional school students in biomedical, social science, behavioral, and computational fields. Be sure to watch our YouTube video and read the tips for applicants before starting your application. The SIP application is now live; the deadline in March 1 but students who apply early have a strong advantage.
· If you are currently a community college student, the NIH Community College Summer Enrichment Program (CCSEP) is for you. CCSEP, part of the NIH Summer Internship Program (SIP), provides students an opportunity to participate in special group activities to prepare for academic transitions and to explore careers in biomedical research and healthcare. Note that the CCSEP deadline is much earlier than the SIP deadline: January 15, 2013!
· If you are looking for scholarships to help pay for college, check out the Undergraduate Scholarship Program (UGSP). Although applications won’t be accepted until January 2, 2013, the program has several important eligibility requirements (including financial need) so check out the Web site and contact us now with your questions.
· If you are an undergraduate looking to develop additional research skills during a gap year (or two) check out the NIH Postbac Program and our NIH Academy, a supplement to the NIH postbac program focused on health disparities. Applications are accepted year round, but you should apply in January/February if you wish to start this summer or fall. NIH postbacs are highly recruited by graduate and professional schools and we provide significant advice and assistance through the decision-making, application, and interview process.
In addition to the many archived science career development videos, we will be videocasting a number of workshops live from the Bethesda campus during the spring semester. See the list below for up-coming videocasts. We hope you are having an excellent fall semester and wish you the best during this holiday season. Please do not hesitate to e-mail me if you have questions about research training opportunities in the NIH Intramural Research Program.
