The NSIP is a 10-week summer internship for undergraduate students interested in cancer research. The program provides integrated research, educational and clinical experiences that emphasize the translation of laboratory discoveries into clinical applications and inspire the next generation of cancer researchers and physician-scientists. 

Interns admitted to the NSIP receive a competitive support package including financial assistance for interstate travel to the University of Maryland Baltimore and a living allowance. Housing at nearby Loyola University Maryland is offered at a reduced cost. The 2019 NSIP will begin at the end of May and conclude at the end of July. The deadline for applications is February 15, 2019; late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
