Student Programs

Many student programs and opportunities exist including summer trainee programs, internships, and fellowships. 

Summer Internship Program in Biomedical Research

The Summer Internship Program (SIP) at the NIH provides an opportunity to spend the summer working side-by-side with some of the leading scientists in the world in an environment devoted exclusively to biomedical research. Students sixteen years of age or older who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents and are currently enrolled at least half-time in high school, an accredited U.S. college or university or an accredited U.S. medical/dental school are eligible to apply. Students who have been accepted into a college or university may also apply. More information...

Commissioned Corps Officer Student Training and Extern Program (COSTEP)

The U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps offers two excellent opportunities for students to serve their country while completing their education. If you are interested in a public health career, we encourage you to apply to the Junior Commissioned Officer Student Training and Extern Program (JRCOSTEP) and the Senior Commissioned Officer Student Training and Extern Program (SRCOSTEP). Both programs offer excellent benefits and are highly competitive.

If you have questions about COSTEP, contact the Office of Commissioned Corps Operations at . Ask to speak to the Commissioned Officer Student Training and Extern Program Coordinator. More information...
