National Summer Transportation Institute

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Headquarters' Civil Rights (HCR) Office requests Statements of Work (SOWs) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 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 (State DOTs) to serve as NSTI Host sites.

State DOTs provide NSTI program oversight to the host sites.

The FHWA Division Offices Civil Rights Specialists 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.

The 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 choose to be student day programs or residential programs in which room and board are provided by the Host Sites to the students.

For more information including the application packet and deadline for submission, please contact your State DOT Representative or your local FHWA Civil Rights Specialist in your State by clicking on the link below.
