Comparison of 2022 SIP and SIP Subprograms

You can use this table to understand the differences among the NIH Summer Internship Program and its various subprograms. IMPORTANT NOTE: The list of "Who Can Apply" is not complete; additional eligibility criteria apply.

If you are a current high school junior or senior, please apply to High School SIP (HS-SIP), HiSTEP, or HiSTEP 2.0.


COVID-19 Update: The 2022 NIH Summer Internship Program will be a hybrid with both virtual interns and a limited number of in-person (i.e., on-campus) interns. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by April 1, 2022. If you are currently interviewing for a position or receive (or have received) an offer from an NIH investigator or program director, please be sure to discuss your preference for an in-person or virtual internship. Some offers may be contingent upon your willingness to work virtually; others will depend on your willingness to come to campus. Note that all interns, both virtual and in-person, will be expected to engage full-time in internship activities, including research, and will receive stipend support from the NIH. All educational programming offered by the OITE, including the 2022 NIH Graduate & Professional School Fair and Summer Presentation Week, will be virtual. The OITE is available to support you as you make decisions about your participation in SIP2022. Please reach out to us. (Updated: 2-28-22)
