Tips to Applying for CDC Internships & Fellowships
The Internship Program is a part of a cooperative agreement between the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). It is designed to provide exposure to state-of-the-art public health information while furthering knowledge and skills. Working with leading public health experts, students apply their education to real life scenarios.
What does the Internship Program offer students in Public Health?
Each year the CDC and ATSDR develop internships for specific projects. In addition to providing “hands-on” experience, the Program hosts an orientation session, speakers series, and several social events. These sessions provide an overview of the CDC and ATSDR, as well as networking opportunities.
When and where are the internships offered?
Each internship is a twelve-week/40 hours a week assignment offered during the spring/summer or fall/winter. All interns are based at:
- CDC’s and ATSDR’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, or Hyattsville, Maryland;
- Cincinnati, Ohio;
- Morgantown, West Virginia;
- Fort Collins, Colorado;
- Anchorage, Alaska.
- The specific location is identified in each description.
Funding is also available annually to support fellowship opportunities at the CDC. The ASPH is responsible for coordinating these fellowships.
