Apply to be a mentor in new, inclusive fellowship program


In partnership with the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE) and International Society of Exposure Science (ISES), the Health Effects Institute is launching a new paid summer fellowship program to encourage undergraduate students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in the environmental health sciences to pursue research in this area.

Fellowship areas can include environmental exposures, epidemiology, bench science, data analysis, and field work. Potential mentors at academic or other nonprofit institutions, and in state or local governments, are invited to apply to mentor and host an undergraduate student in their group during the summer of 2023.

Interested in mentoring? We're looking for volunteers!

Initial enthusiasm for the program within ISEE and ISES was very high and a joint committee has been formed with HEI to oversee the program and manage the applications. Several potential mentors have already reached out ahead of HEI launching the mentorship application process.

Mentor applications and more information about the program are available here.

Applications from prospective mentors will be due October 28, 2022. The fellowship application process will open in mid-December.
