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.

  • 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
