NCI employees are on a mission: to relieve the pain and suffering that cancer and AIDS cause, and we believe the more brainpower put to the task, the quicker the answers will come. So we reach out to young minds early in elementary school, as our scientists go to classrooms to convey the excitement of discovery and the intrigue of science. And we continue the message through high school, undergraduate, and graduate school – offering mentoring, fellowships, summer and after-school employment, and scholarships.
The 2013 Summer Handbook
is available online. You can use it to find descriptions
of career and professional development programs, information on safety training
at the NIH and commuting options, and suggestions for museums to visit in your spare

NCI-Frederick employees are in the community, in schools and universities, in civic
organizations and volunteer groups: in science – to save lives.
