Sustainability at Meredith College
Collegiate Leaders in Environmental Health Summer Fellowship Program
This is a 10-week summer environmental internship for undergraduate students who are passionate about the environment, interested in human health, and curious about how they are linked.
Environmental health professionals engage in a broad and exciting range of activities—basic and applied research, direct health protection efforts such as disaster preparedness and response, health education, patient care, policy support, and more. For students interested in the environment, health, or both, few fields are more fascinating.
Interns will participate in environmental health projects, interact with federal officials and scientists, and visit important environmental health sites in and around Atlanta. Other activities include "brown-bag" lunches with CDC staff, as well as attending lectures from prominent environmental health leaders in the Atlanta area. In addition, interns will be able to attend the many seminars offered by CDC during the summer.
A stipend of approximately $600 per week will be provided for living expenses. Travel to Atlanta will be the intern’s responsibility. Potential housing options will be provided on the housing page; however interns will be expected to make their own arrangements.
