  ABOUT THE PROGRAM Summer Orientation 2015

The Summer Internship Program in Biomedical Research offers a unique opportunity for high school, college and graduate, and medical students to develop skills in scientific research. In this program, students receive hands-on experience. Summer internships generally last from eight to ten weeks, beginning in late May and ending in mid-to-late August. Students attend weekly seminars presented by NIA scientists and at the conclusion of the summer program, students present their data developed from their research project at the NIA Summer Student Poster Day.

To be eligible for this program, students must be enrolled at least half-time in an accredited U.S. high school, college, or university. In addition, candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and at least 16 years of age. Some flexibility exists to accommodate individual student needs.
