HEI's Summer Fellowship Program

Summer Fellowship

Undergraduate applications are now open until February 2, 2024! Apply here.

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 2023 fellows, mentors, and their projects 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 will select prospective fellows and match them with mentors at academic, nonprofit institutions, and state or local government institutions.
