If you or someone you know are a high school student with Native American ancestry that is currently enrolled in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade and interested in pursuing a health science career, this is a great opportunity for you!

The goal of the FREE Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP)Youth Enjoy Science (YES) Weeklong Institute for Students in High School (WISH) is to strengthen the career development of Native American students underrepresented in the health professions and improve their access to information and resources that can prepare them for college success in a health-science field with a focus on cancer-related careers. COVID-19 UPDATE: In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the SHPEP National Program Office (NPO) has decided to forgo on-site programming and is currently exploring other options. In response to COVID-19, we are evaluating various options to shift the YES WISH program online. All applicants will be notified of these changes as this develops.

To apply, please complete the following:

  1. SHPEP YES WISH APPLICATION
  2. SHPEP YES WISH PERMISSION FORM and send to me
  3. Have any teacher complete and return to the SHPEP YES WISH RECOMMENDATION
