The National Cancer Institute is now accepting applications!
NCI Communications Fellowship (NCF)
Applications for the 2021 class are due by February 26, 2021.
Apply online! Please visit the NCF website for more information.
The NCI Communications Fellowship (NCF), formerly known as the Health Communications Internship Program (HCIP), gives highly-qualified graduate students and recent graduate degree recipients the opportunity to participate in vital communications projects across the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
NCF Fellows are offered one-year fellowships in various communications and science-focused offices at NCI and a robust career development series. The NCF highly encourages individuals with communications education and/or experience who are represented in NIH’s Notice of Interest in Diversity (NOT-OD-18-210) to apply.
Due to the rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and NIH’s operating status, the 2021 NCF program will begin with a virtual Orientation on July 6, 2021. We are committed to providing an outstanding fellowship opportunity in 2021 and will update candidates as more information becomes available. Please contact NCF-Contact@mail.nih.gov with any questions.
