NIH Summer Internship Program 2017

The NIH Summer Internship Program (SIP) is now accepting applications for summer 2017. In addition to full-time biomedical research opportunities, we provide career development opportunities for all summer interns, including workshops, courses, journal clubs, and access to the OITE Career Services Center.  We invite you to join our diverse community of over 5000 trainees for great science and outstanding career development resources.

The NIH Summer Internship Program (SIP) accepts high school, undergraduate, graduate and professional (medical/dental/pharmacy/nursing, etc.) school students in biomedical, social science, behavioral, and computational fields who will be at least 16 years of age by June 15, 2017. Be sure to watch our YouTube video and read the tips for applicants before starting your application. The SIP application deadline is March 1, 2017, but students who apply early have an advantage. NOTE: If you apply to one of SIP subprograms, they have earlier deadlines (see below). SIP includes several subprograms designed to help build a diverse and inclusive scientific workforce. PLEASE NOTE: Although you use the online SIP application to apply for all these subprograms, eligibility criteria, application deadlines, and program curricula vary (view a program comparison chart). Please read each program's description carefully to decide which, if any, will best fit your needs. If you apply to one of these programs, you must submit your application before the subprogram deadline AND contact your references to let them know the deadline for receipt of their letters.
