The High School Scientific Training and Enrichment Program (HiSTEP) is a new program for high school students in the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, area within commuting distance of the main NIH campus in Bethesda. The program aims to introduce students from high schools with a high percentage of financially-disadvantaged students to the exciting possibility of careers in the sciences and biomedical research. Unlike the other NIH summer programs, HiSTEP is not a hands-on, full-time research program. Instead, HiSTEP will combine an introduction to scientific, professional, and personal skills with leadership training and an exploration of STEM-M (science, technology, engineering, math, and medically-related) careers. In addition, college and career advising will help prepare HiSTEP participants for future scholarships and internships. If you are a high school student and interested, please read more about HiSTEP.
