ASPPH/CDC Public Health Fellowship Program

Deadline: February 6, 2014

The ASPPH/CDC Public Health Fellowship Program was established in 1995. Its goal is to address emerging needs of public health, and to provide leadership and professional opportunities at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for students and graduate students of ASPPH member graduate schools and programs of public health. The fellowships are from one to two years in duration, depending on the needs of CDC and the fellow. The Fellowship Program was established to strengthen the relationship between the academic public health community and public health practice agencies. The types of fellowships will vary according to specific areas of research or training within CDC´s Centers/Institutes/Offices (CIOs).

Eligibility

To be eligible, students must have received an MPH or Doctorate degree prior to the beginning of the fellowship. Early career professionals with MPH or Doctorate degrees (within 5 years of graduation) may also apply for the fellowship program. Applicants must have received their degree(s) from an ASPPH-member, CEPH-accredited, graduate school or program of public health (a list of accredited schools and programs with full ASPPH membership can be accessed via the ASPPH Web site), as well as be a U.S. citizen or hold a visa permitting permanent residence in the U.S., to be eligible for the fellowship program.
