Interested in a Summer Research Internship?

(Submission Deadline: February 14, 2016)

 

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) invites high school and undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in science to submit applications for the 2016 NIDA Summer Research Program. To apply and for complete program information, see the online application form.

 

Interns work with NIDA funded scientists at research institutions across the United States for 8 weeks in the field of substance abuse and addiction research. Internships may involve a variety of experiences including laboratory experiments, data collection and analysis, patient interviews, literature reviews and more.

 

Interns receive a stipend (high school $10/hr, undergraduates $12/hr), and if necessary and eligible, provisions for travel and housing expenses.

Through this program, NIDA encourages the participation of high school and undergraduate students who are from racial/ethnic populations nationally underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, and clinical sciences, although students from any race/ethnicity may apply. Graduating 2016 college seniors are also eligible to apply.

 

To apply and for complete program information, see the online application form.
