Now Accepting Applications for the ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program – Due January 27

The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health is pleased to offer recent graduates from Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)-accredited, ASPPH member schools and programs of public health an exciting opportunity to gain environmental health experience at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Applications are currently being accepted for the 2017 ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program. The deadline to apply is 11:59 p.m. Eastern, January 27, 2017.

The ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program offers outstanding opportunities for early-career public health professionals by enabling them to train at EPA on high-priority environmental, public health issues. ASPPH/EPA Fellows work closely with nationally recognized experts within the premier environmental health agency in the world. The EPA leads the nation’s environmental science, research, education, and assessment efforts, while working to protect our health and our environment.

“As an Environmental Health Fellow in the Climate Change Division, I was fortunate to work on a number of challenging projects, each providing me with opportunities to work closely with experts in the field of environmental health as well as to develop some expertise of my own,“ said Mr. Daniel Malashock, former ASPPH/EPA Fellow. “The fellowship provided me not only with an enriching experience, but a professional network and foundation that I am confident will benefit me throughout my public health career.”

Fellowships will be based at various EPA offices, most of which are located in the Washington, DC area, but may also be located in any of EPA’s laboratories or regional offices throughout the country. The fellowship positions are full-time opportunities for a one-year period (estimated, September 2017 – August 2018). Detailed program information and all application instructions can be accessed at https://fellowships-internships.aspph.org.

To be eligible for this program, applicants must have received their Masters or Doctorate degree prior to the beginning of the fellowship (no later than July 2017) or within the last five years (no earlier than May 2012). Graduate degrees must come from an ASPPH member graduate school or program of public health accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). All applicants must be U.S. citizens or hold a visa permitting permanent residence (“Green Card”) in the U.S. to be eligible for the fellowship program.

Certification in Public Health (CPH) preferred.
