Bienvenido and welcome! Our program's mantra is "Opening Doors of Opportunity, Abriendo Puertas de Oportunidad" because we believe that HNIP can be the formative experience by which you can grow both personally and professionally.  Federal agencies and corporations partner with us because year after year HNIP recruits some of the brightest and most talented students from across the country.  Join the more than 11,000 program alumni who have benefited from the exposure to industry, professional development, and mentoring and networking opportunities. Please use the tabs at left to learn more about our program and to submit your online application.
