Summer Program Application Process


How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in the DCEG Summer Program. The DCEG and NIH application sites for summer 2019 are now open. To apply, please submit both of the following:

1. Statement of Interest in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics

Regardless of education level, please submit a brief (300-word) statement about your research interests/experience using our brief summary application form. The information you provide will be made available to DCEG investigators for review.

2. NIH Online Application

All summer applicants must also apply online through the NIH Research and Training Opportunities website. Please note that the NIH now has two different applications, and you must select the correct one for your current education level.

Note for all: The NIH application form allows you to submit keywords describing your research interests (question 7). To have your application considered by investigators in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, be sure to include "Epidemiology" and/or "Biostatistics" in your list of keywords.
