ICRC 2-Day Visit

ICRC applications for the 2017 program will be accepted beginning in September 2016 and admission is highly competitive. Qualified applications will be reviewed and evaluated by a panel of NCI scientists. Program participants will be selected and notified late December 2016 to early January 2017. NCI will sponsor a visit for ICRC participants to the NIH campus in February 2017 for an opportunity to learn about the research being conducted at the NCI. Participants may be scheduled for interviews with NCI Investigators recruiting summer or post-baccalaureate interns. Internship offers will be made by individual investigators through the ICRC program office.

Selection as a participant for the visit does not guarantee the candidate an internship at the NCI.

ICRC Internships

If a student is hired by an NCI investigator as an intern, he/she will work under their direction and in concert with other researchers, fellows, and technicians. Interns will have the option to attend seminars on topics related to basic, clinical, biomedical and behavioral research, human health, healthy lifestyles, and health disparities.

ICRC interns are provided with travel support and a monthly stipend with summer housing subsidy.

All interns are required to carry health insurance. No-cost health insurance is available for interns who work a minimum of three months.

NCI has facilities in Bethesda, Rockville, and Fredrick, Maryland. You may be matched with an investigator at any of the locations.
