Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program
Deadline for electronic submission of application: 01/16/2014
Deadline for ASPPH's receipt of hardcopy materials: 01/17/2014
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. ASPH/EPA fellows work closely with nationally recognized experts who work to protect the environment.
The Program is designed to provide leadership training in environmental health and policy. Selected Fellows will:
Collaborate with leading experts in the fields of environmental health, toxicology, epidemiology, biology, and risk assessment on important current and emerging public health issues;
Participate in work on cross-cutting health assessment issues
· Have access to environmental research laboratories and specialized equipment;
· Acquire skills, experience, and knowledge to enhance your career.
Fellowship positions are full-time opportunities for duration of one year (September 2014 - August 2015, estimated). Fellowships may be extended for an additional year, pending available funding, continued priority of the project area within EPA, and mutual agreement by the fellow, EPA, and ASPPH.Fellows will be placed in various EPA organizations, most of which are located in the Washington, D.C. area, but may also be located in any of several laboratories, regional offices, or centers throughout the country. Applicants will be notified of exact assignment locations during the final selection phase and matching process.
To qualify for this fellowship, candidates must have received their masters or doctorate degrees from an ASPPH-member school or program of public health within the last five years and be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident (Green Card). Preference will be given to candidates with a Certification in Public Health.
Fellows will receive a stipend payment for the duration of the fellowship based on the education level/degree requirement of the fellowship position. The fellowship stipend is intended to cover all living expenses including housing and project related travel.
In addition to the fellowship stipend, the fellow will have “fellowship allowance” intended to cover health-related expenses incurred during the one year fellowship period. The “fellowship allowance” may also be used to cover project-related travel, tuition, journal subscriptions, association dues, etc.

In the first stage, the applications are reviewed by two faculty members from schools of public health (other than the applicant´s institution) on the following criteria: quality of essay, strength of credentials, previous professional experience; and letters of recommendation. Applicants approved by the faculty review are invited to Washington, DC to interview for the fellowship. A panel will interview applicants and along with the faculty review comments to assess which of the candidates applying for the individual projects are most suited for the fellowship.
