Are you a high school student interested in a summer internship at NIH? Visit https://www.training.nih.gov/histep for details. The application deadline is March 1, 2015 and letters of recommendation must be received by March 15, 2015.
NIH will be sponsoring a 2015 summer internship program for high school students called HiSTEP. The goal of HiSTEP is to expand the pipeline of students interested in biomedical and healthcare careers by expanding opportunities for high school students from schools with a large population of financially-disadvantaged students. Current high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors interested in STEM-M (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medically-related) fields are encouraged to apply.
HiSTEP students will take part in a 5-week, full-time summer internship. The internship will be located on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, MD. It begins July 6th, 2015, and ends August 7th, 2015. HiSTEP students will explore the breadth of the scientific enterprise, the importance of biomedical research, and many STEM-M careers. They will attend workshops and lectures, and complete hands-on activities. Students will receive Transhare benefits to cover the cost of public transportation and a stipend of $2150 for the 5-week internship.
HiSTEP welcomes applications from high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors eager to explore science and health-related careers. We encourage students from diverse backgrounds to apply. Applicants must commit to complete the entire 5-week internship experience. HiSTEP applicants must also:
Applicants should complete the standard NIH Summer Internship Program (SIP) application online. They should choose NIH-HiSTEP from the drop-down menu in Item 8. In the cover letter, HiSTEP applicants should discuss their science and math coursework. They should also explain why they are applying to HiSTEP and discuss any activities that show their leadership potential and commitment to self-improvement and learning. These might be work experiences or extracurricular activities. For help preparing your application, please read “Instructions for Completing the Application for HiSTEP” and all of the HiSTEP FAQs.
The HiSTEP application deadline is 11:59 pm, March 1, 2015. Letters of recommendation must be submitted by 11:59 pm, March 15, 2015.
