Internships & Fellowships

What is the difference between an internship and fellowship?

An internship is a temporary job for a student with emphasis in training. Some are paid and some are unpaid. Fellowships are merit-based scholarships (funding) for the purpose of furthering education. Some may come with an internship or post-graduate work requirement.

CDC Summer Graduate Environmental Health Internship (GEH): The Graduate Environmental Health program 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. Interns will receive a $750 weekly stipend while participating in this program. 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.
