Interested students must want to participate in scientific research. In addition, they must currently be juniors or seniors (at time of application) who will have advanced to senior status or graduated from high school by the start of the program. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for consideration into this program. Applications are due by 11:59:59 PM EST on February 1. Late applications will not be reviewed. Only US citizens are eligible to apply for this program.
SHIP will accept applications through USAJobs from December 1 – February 1. Please note, when logging into the USAJobs, there is an initial profile that you must set up (including a resume), as well as a few questions that you must answer. This is NOT the SHIP application! It is just a profile that can be used for any federal government job application. Once you have set-up the USAJobs profile, you will be asked if you would like to continue to the job application. Please select “yes”.
If you do not see a list of at least 20 questions, as well as a request for the names and e-mail addresses of your recommenders, then you are not in the SHIP application!
