Description:
The National Cancer Institute's Introduction to Cancer Research Careers Program (ICRC) sponsors highly-qualified students from underrepresented populations and/or financially disadvantaged backgrounds on an expense-paid, two-day visit to NIH located in Bethesda, Maryland. Successful candidates possess a strong academic record, research experience, and a commitment to a career in biomedical research. Students selected will receive transportation, hotel accommodations, a daily expense allowance, campus and lab tours, and the opportunity to interview with NCI investigators seeking summer and one-year interns. All participants selected for internships are provided with monthly stipends, travel expenses, and a summer housing subsidy.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is the Federal Government's principal agency for cancer research and training. The NCI coordinates the National Cancer Program, which conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer, rehabilitation from cancer, and the continuing care of cancer patients and the families of cancer patients.
