Fort Detrick NCI and USAMRIID Science Internship

The National Cancer Institute's Werner H. Kirsten Student Intern Program (SIP) at Frederick is designed to expose high school seniors to research and administrative management in a health care environment. The scientific interns experience the basic methods of cancer research through "hands-on" laboratory training. Internships in Support of Science/Research may be assigned projects in information technology, graphics and media, and library science.
Students selected as scientific interns will be trained at the NCI-Frederick in laboratory techniques and safety procedures. Students will work for a mandatory eight consecutive weeks during the summer break between their junior and senior years under the Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) Program, with a total stipend of approximately $3,500. At the beginning of their senior year, students will then be converted to the Special Volunteer Appointment for the remainder of their internship. Interns will not be compensated for their service during the school year. However, they will receive four credits (2 blocks per semester) towards their diploma.

Current juniors interested in the Werner H. Kirsten Student Intern Program through NCI-Frederick and the USAMRIID Science Internship Programs for the 2014-15 school year should plan to attend an informational meeting  TBD.  
The purpose of the meeting is to review the online application process and answer student questions. Current participants will also be available to discuss their experiences.
