Hey Guys!

I got accepted into a fantastic laboratory for the National Institutes of Health Summer Internship Program for Biomedical Research (NIH SIP). I will be there the first week of June until after the week of Poster Day (approx. 10 weeks). I just wanted to connect with other people who got in. I will be interning in a laboratory for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

I am also inquiring on any out-of-towners like myself who would like to share a short term lease apartment in the Bethesda/Chevy Chase/ Rockville areas near the vicinity of the NIH. I was considering renting a room or basement at a nearby residence through the NIH suggested housing but I don't really feel all that comfortable living in someone's household who is not a student. So if you got accepted into the program as well and are looking to split an apartment for the summer let me know! I'm Male, 20 years old currently attending UNLV. I will be busy working at the NIH (as I expect you are too) and pretty much spending my day out doing research and using the NIH facilities. I will be pretty much using the apartment as a place to keep my stuff and sleep. I do not have preferences on a roommate other than the fact that you are part of the NIH SIP program as well and you don't throw wild geeky parties in the middle of the night lol.

A bit of both. I did inquire for some which either told me they have filled their summer positions already or do not have funds or space and some that sought me out due to my current lab experience and skills

Thanks for the info! I applied kind of late and was just curious. I feel like at this point, it'll be hard to get a spot but I'm hoping someone will like my combo of skills or that the people I reach out to have space and $$.

Is anyone still looking for a roommate? I have been looking in the Bethesda (is very expensive) or surrounding areas. Additionally, are all of you SIP students or are there IRTAs as well. If you are interested let me know.

You should find the clubPCR yahoo group. It's for NIH PostBacs, Postdocs, interns and such. They are always posting housing listing and roommate requests, especially for this coming summer. I hope that helps! I found my place that way

Did you end living with a roommate or found a sublet. Additionally, how much is your rent if you don't mind me asking?

Hey guys. If you are looking for a reliable and cheap place to live in the area, I have read that American University is where many of the NIH SIP interns stay. It is off the red line and is in D.C. I will be interning at the Clinical Center in Bethesda and after talking to my mentor, she even agreed that it was a great idea to stay there because parking can be hard to find on the main campus. You have to be at least 18 to stay there. I hope this helped!

  1. Pharmacy Student
Hello,

I'm a 4th year pharmacy student from the area and have interned at NIH for the past year. I am renting my room in Arlington for my off and away rotation blocks. NIH will give you a $150 metro stipend/card for each month, so using the metro becomes free :) Here is my ad that I posted on another student housing forum. You can use the trip planner option on the DC metro website to see how your commute to NIH would be. Good luck!

Rent $950/mo

I applied a little late to and have sent out sooo many emails since the last week or so. All of the labs sofar are filled or do not host student for the SIP program. 2 labs have told me they would have taken me if I had applied earlier.. which actually kind of hurts. Im still cold emailing like crazy, but was wondering if you had found a position around this time? And whether anyone has advice? Whether I should keep applying or give up?
