The Graduate Environmental Health program (GEH) is a paid ten week summer internship available for graduate students with majors or interests deemed to be in support of environmental health missions at NCEH/ATSDR. During the program interns will be assigned to projects that utilize the skills they’ve acquired through graduate studies and personal experiences. Interns will also be able to take advantage of lecture series and other opportunities offered at the CDC. The number of intern positions is dependent on funds available. Interns will receive a monthly stipend at a rate of ~$780/week while participating in this program. The stipend will be deposited at the end of each month, so keep in mind the first paycheck will be at the end of June. The mission of the internship is to offer selected students a broad overview of environmental health at the federal level and to foster an interest in environmental health as a career. Applicants should have a passion for the environment and an eagerness to learn about the environment’s link to human health.
