Summer internship at NIH in Washington DC

2012 Community College Summer Enrichment Program (CCSEP): In summer 2012, the NIH will again offer a special SIP program designed to recruit community college students to the NIH. Students in CCSEP can take advantage of all the opportunities available to other SIP interns. In addition, they will make a commitment to completing an enrichment curriculum. If you are a community college student and interested, please read about CCSEP. 
https://www.training.nih.gov/ccsep_home_page

Eligibility: The Summer Internship Program is for students who are at least sixteen years of age or older at the time they begin the program and who are currently enrolled at least half-time in high school or an accredited U.S. college or university as undergraduate, graduate, or professional students. Students who have been accepted into a college or university program may also apply. To be eligible, candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

Stipend Information: The stipends for trainees are adjusted yearly; the level depends on education completed prior to starting at the NIH. For details, see the Trainee Stipends page.

Application Procedure: Prospective candidates must apply online. The application is available from mid-November to March 1.
 https://www2.training.nih.gov/apps/publicForms/sip/forms/sipApp.aspx
 
It requires submission of:

Selection: The NIH Summer Internship Program is highly competitive. In 2010, more than 6700 applications were submitted, and about 1200 interns were selected. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis from November through April by scientists in the Institutes and Centers of the NIH. Individual scientists select their own summer interns and provide their funding; there is no centralized selection process. For suggestions on how to increase your chances of being offered a position, please read the SIP Frequently Asked Questions.
