Student Intern Programs at the NCI at Frederick and USAMRIID (Fort Detrick)

Our Student Intern Programs involve students in specific, competitively awarded placements in actual scientific laboratory settings under the direction of private sector, university or government scientists. Students participate in real-life laboratory science with the opportunity to design and implement their own scientific research. Two opportunities are the Werner H. Kirsten Student Intern Program (coordinated through the facilities of the National Cancer Institute at Frederick),and USAMRIID, Ft. Detrick. Students earn one credit each term for a two-block experience, or two credits each term for a four-block experience. Students generally are granted an Administrative Attendance Waiver releasing them from classroom time for a portion of the school day and are in their senior year of high school. Student interns are responsible for providing their own transportation between school and the job site.
