HEI's Summer Fellowship Program

Summer Fellowship

Applications are now closed. Watch for mentorship applications to open in fall 2024 and fellowship applications to open in winter 2024! You can sign up for HEI’s monthly email newsletter The Monitor to be alerted when applications open.

HEI is excited to launch its Summer Fellowship Program for a second year! The program aims to encourage undergraduate students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in the environmental health sciences to explore research opportunities in this area. Environmental health fields are defined broadly and include environmental exposure assessment, epidemiology, public health, and environmental justice among other areas. The 2024 fellows and mentors and the 2023 fellows are listed here.

The program provides financial support for a 10-week summer fellowship in 2024 and is run in collaboration with the International Society of Exposure Science and the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology. The fellowship is open to mentors and students based in the United States. Our joint HEI/ISEE/ISES committee selects prospective fellows and matches them with mentors at academic, nonprofit institutions, and state or local government institutions.
