Apply Today for GET HIP
Gallup's Technology Innovation Program for High School Students
Applications for the 2019-2020 program are due September 8, 2019
Get real work experience in technology innovation.
There's no better way to develop your interest in technology and build your experience section on your college application than participating in an innovative tech program with one of the world's leading firms in analytics and advice.
GET HIP (Gallup's Education Taskforce -- High School Innovation Program) gives students in the Omaha metro area an inside look at the importance of technology in the workplace and the community.
You'll be immersed in a crash course of today's technology over six Saturdays in fall 2019 and six Saturdays in spring 2020. You'll also receive mentoring from adults whose goal is to set you on a path for career success in addition to networking with others who have a passion for innovation.
No technology experience? Or are you a pro? Our program accepts both levels and challenges everyone.
And the best part? You'll compete for a six-week paid internship at Gallup's Riverfront Campus in summer 2020.
Here's what GET HIP students, teachers and parents have to say about their experiences:
"It's so much more than just typing behind a computer. It's about building relationships; it's about learning how to work in a group. Being at Gallup has really made me want to pursue a career in IT, and before coming to Gallup, I don't think I would have gone into IT. I just would have never thought about it." -- Kristin, GET HIP student
"I was a student for GET HIP, and I ended up teaching GET HIP. Right from day one, I knew that GET HIP was the place for me. As a computer science major, we do a lot of theory stuff, but I believe GET HIP really gave me the practical knowledge." -- Andy, GET HIP teacher
"This program is certainly unique to our community, and I believe, unique across the United States" -- Shelly, Parent of GET HIP student
"GET HIP is really important because it really showed me what I really want to do in college." -- Rohan, GET HIP student
