NHLBI Research Training Programs for High
The programs listed below are designed to stimulate
interest in research and to encourage high school students
to consider majoring in science at the undergraduate level.
The programs reflect the Institute's longstanding commitment
to research training and career development for young people.
These positions can start a student on a career track leading
to an M.D., Ph.D., or other equivalent degree.
For high school students, the NHLBI provides a research training
program that supports summer positions at the Institute.
For high school students, the NHLBI also offers a program
that supports the participation of students with disabilities
and/or from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in research
projects at U.S. institutions during the summer or academic
year, or a combination of summer and academic year.
