High School Students

Description:
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Intramural Training & Education and Office of Scientific Workforce Diversity announce the new High School Scientific Training and Enrichment Program (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. We encourage current high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors interested in STEM-M (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medically-related) fields 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. HiSTEP students will explore the breadth of the scientific enterprise, the importance of biomedical research, and many STEM-M careers. They will complete workshops, lectures, and 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.
