The SHPEP National Program Office (NPO) is proud to announce that SHPEP 2022 will be offered as an in-person experience! Students who apply for the SHPEP summer experience will need to follow the policies set by the program site where they are accepted and must adhere to an indoor mask mandate to participate in the program, even if fully vaccinated. 

The health and safety of our scholars and program site staff remain our top priorities. Because the pandemic is a fluid situation and guidelines are evolving, the NPO is continually assessing the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the implementation of SHPEP 2022. The NPO, along with our 12 program sites located across the United States, will monitor guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and state and local health authorities in the coming months. We are in close contact with staff at each of our program sites and regularly receive updates on any decisions that may alter normal campus operations or impact the implementation of summer programming. Please continue to monitor our website for updates on the status of SHPEP 2022.
