NHLBI Research Training Programs for
High School Students
The programs listed below are designed to stimulate interest
in research and to encourage high school students to consider
majoring in science at the undergraduate level. The programs
reflect the Institute's longstanding commitment to research
training and career development for young people. These positions
can start a student on a career track leading to an M.D.,
Ph.D., or other equivalent degree.
For high school students, the NHLBI provides a research training
program that supports summer positions at the Institute.
For high school students, the NHLBI also offers a program
that supports the participation of students with disabilities
and/or from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in research
projects at U.S. institutions during the summer or academic
year, or a combination of summer and academic year.
