ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program

Started in 2003, the ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program has provided experiential learning opportunities in training areas such as Safe and Sustainable Water, Children’s Environmental Health, Environmental Justice, Air Quality, and Safe Chemicals. Fellowship assignments are full-time opportunities with possible placement at EPA headquarters in Washington, DC, Research Triangle Park, NC, and EPA regional offices nationwide.

The goal of the ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program is to provide professional training and opportunities for early-career public health professionals to be involved with EPA on current and emerging environmental public health needs. EPA leads the nation's environmental science, research, education, and assessment efforts. Since 1970, EPA has been working for a cleaner, healthier environment for the American people. EPA is the country’s primary developer of environmental policy and rule-making decisions. ASPPH/EPA Fellows train under nationally recognized experts who work to protect human health and the environment.
