Final Deadline: Varies by program; check website
The Environmental Health Fellowship Program is supported through a cooperative agreement between the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The goal of the ASPPH Environmental Health Fellowship Program is to provide professional training and opportunities for early career public health professionals by enabling them to work in EPA on current and emerging environmental public health needs. These placements will be for one year, with a possible one-year extension. The program capitalizes on an important interdependence between the academic public health community and the EPA, one of the most important public health agencies in the world. EPA leads the nation’s environmental science, research, education and assessment efforts. Since 1970, EPA has been working for a cleaner, healthier environment for American people. ASPPH/EPA fellows work closely with nationally recognized experts who work to protect the environment.
