NIEHS Scholars Connect Program

NSCP is designed to provide an opportunity for highly motivated science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) focused undergraduate students from the surrounding Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) and other nearby academic institutions with students from underrepresented groups to solidly connect with NIEHS and engage in many of its educational, informational, training, and career-oriented outlets. 

Scholars will be selected by a mentor/lab, and will:

  • Define a project
  • Construct a hypothesis
  • Test the hypothesis
  • Analyze the results/draw conclusions
  • Report the results

Scholars will also:

  • Attend workshops and seminars, including a mandatory orientation week
  • Meet weekly with the OSED director and/or Program Coordinator
  • Present their project at the end of each semester (Connection)
  • Submit additional assignments

Stipend: ~ $2000/month (Summer Connection); ~ $800/month (Fall and Spring Connections)  
Time Commitment: Full-time internship (40 hours/week) during the Summer Connection; Part-time (15 hours/week) during the Fall and Spring Connections 

The 2016-2017 application will open November 23, 2015 and close on March 14, 2016 – please submit your application by then, as none will be accepted after the closing date.
