ASPPH is now accepting applications for the ASPPH Public Health Internship Program for Summer 2019. This internship program is based at ASPPH headquarters in Washington, DC and will provide a unique experience where the selected student(s) can apply their skills and knowledge learned in the classroom to public health projects of importance to ASPPH and our members. The deadline to apply is Friday, January 25, 2019.
“The summer internship at ASPPH was a great experience for me as it allowed me to see public health from a non-profit lens,” writes Ms. Razia Momen, former ASPPH Intern. “The internship gave me the opportunity to meet professionals who worked in public health education not only at ASPPH but with organizations and individuals ASPPH works with on a daily basis.”
To be eligible, candidates must be current graduate students enrolled full-time, with their first year of graduate school completed by June 2019, in an ASPPH-member, Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)-accredited school or program of public health, with expected graduation in spring 2019, winter 2019, or spring 2020. Applicants must also be U.S. citizens or hold visas permitting permanent residence (“Green Card”) in the U.S.
Candidates must be able to relocate to Washington, DC to begin the internship in late-May or early-June 2019 and stay for a minimum of 10 weeks. Relocation expenses will not be covered.
Applications must be submitted online via the ASPPH Fellowships and Internships Online Application System. Detailed application instructions, as well as a project description, can be found on the ASPPH Fellowships and Internships webpage.
