National Institutes of Health
The purpose of the NIH Summer Research Experience Program (referred to as the Summer Research Program) is to provide a high quality research experience for high school and college students and for science teachers during the summer academic break. The NIH expects that such programs will: help attract young students to careers in science; provide opportunities for college students to gain valuable research experience to help prepare them for graduate school; and enhance the skills of science teachers and enable them to more effectively communicate the nature of the scientific process to their students. The programs would also contribute to enhancing overall science literacy. Summer Research Programs that expand and complement existing summer educational and training programs are encouraged. Note: Not all participating Institutes and Centers (ICs) support all aspects of this program. Therefore, prospective applicants must consult the Table of IC-Specific Information, Requirements and Staff Contacts in this announcement to determine if your application will be accepted for review, and should contact staff at the relevant IC (see also Section VII) to discuss the proposed Program.
