Since 1995, Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) Fellowship Programs have contributed to efforts to build an effective public health workforce by placing public health graduate students in federal agency offices in the US and around the world. Under the guidance of mentors, participants experience first-hand how to apply public health theory and knowledge in practical settings. ASPPH fellows train in areas such as monitoring and surveillance, program management, research, evaluation, informatics, statistics, epidemiology, environmental health, and policy while making meaningful contributions to important public health programs.
Applications are currently being accepted for two ASPPH Fellowship Programs:
The ASPPH/CDC Public Health Fellowship Program offers opportunities for early-career public health professionals by enabling them to train at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on a variety of high-priority public health issues. ASPPH/CDC Public Health Fellows work closely with nationally recognized experts within the nation’s premier health promotion, prevention, and preparedness agency and global leader in public health. Fellowship assignments will be based at CDC Headquarters in Atlanta, GA. The fellowship positions are full-time training opportunities for one year beginning in early-July 2021.
The ASPPH/ U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Environmental Health Fellowship Program offers outstanding opportunities for early-career public health professionals by enabling them to train at the EPA on high-priority environmental, public health issues.

The EPA leads the nation’s environmental science, research, education, and assessment efforts, while working to protect our health and our environment. Fellowships will be based at various EPA offices, most of which are located in the Washington, DC Headquarters, but may also be located in any of EPA’s laboratories or regional offices throughout the country.
