Applications are now being accepted for a 10-week summer environmental internship for students majoring in Environmental Health. Interns gain environmental health experience and an understanding of environmental health work at the local, state, regional, tribal, and federal levels. Application deadline: February 15, 2012.

Over the summer, interns explore many aspects of environmental public health. Interns gain environmental health experience and an understanding of environmental health work at the local, state, regional, tribal, and federal levels.

Interns will collaborate with federal employees working in the environmental health field and develop mentoring relationships. Interns also shadow senior officials and scientists, spend time in local public health departments, and travel to important environmental health sites in the city of Atlanta and beyond. Interns may also attend brown-bag lunches with CDC staff to discuss environmental health topics and make presentations at CDC staff meetings. CDC’s extensive lecture and seminar program is available to interns as well. SUPEH interns and interns in the Collegiate Leaders for Environmental Health (CLEH) program attend field trips and other activities together. (Note that eligibility for the CLEH program differs from that of SUPEH.)

SUPEH interns receive a weekly stipend of approximately $600 for living expenses
