National Environmental Public Health Internship Program Application for Host Sites
The National Environmental Public Health Internship Program is seeking local, state, and tribal health departments to host summer environmental health student interns.
The program provides opportunities for college students from environmental health programs accredited by the National Environmental Health Science and Protection Accreditation Council to receive $4,000-$6,000 stipends to complete a 10-week internship. Information for students interested in applying is available on the internship page.
To be considered as a host program, the health department must:
- Provide opportunities for student interns to experience multiple environmental health programs and activities
- Have the ability to assist the student in identifying and completing an independent project that focuses on solving a current, local environmental health challenge
- Assign a mentor to advise the intern during the internship period
Examples of past interns' projects may be found on the success stories web page.
Local, state, and tribal health departments are eligible to apply.
This is an opportunity to host an intern who can assist with environmental health projects. Information provided by the health department will be posted on the NEHA website for prospective students to view.
