2015 National Summer Transportation Institute Program: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Headquarters' Civil Rights (HCR) Office requests Statements of Work (SOWs) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 NSTI Program.

The NSTI program is a Science, Technology and Math (STEM) focused program for high school and junior high school students. It is administered by accredited colleges, community colleges and universities, accredited Tribal colleges, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and Asian-American Native American Pacific Island Serving Institutions (ANAPISI) throughout the United States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Pacific Island territories and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

These institutions make application to the State DOT to serve as NSTI “Host sites.” State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs) provide NSTI program oversight to the host sites.

The Civil Rights Specialists of FHWA’s Division Offices provide program guidance to the State DOTs in their oversight of the NSTI program.

Academic institutions interested in serving as host sites must complete and submit their application package to the State DOT.

NSTI program objectives are to improve STEM skills, provide awareness to middle and high school students - particularly minority, female and disadvantaged youth - about transportation careers, and encourage them to consider transportation-related courses of study in their higher education pursuits.

Host sites are required to commit significant program time to classroom participation. The length of the program is typically 2-4 consecutive weeks. Host sites may be student day programs or residential programs in which room and board are provided by the Host Sites to the students.
