We have opened our applications for the Occupational Health Sciences’ 2021 Summer Student Research Awards. Our Summer Student Research Awards are paid summer internships designed to introduce undergraduate students to biomedical and occupational health research.
Occupational Health Sciences’ Summer Student Research Awards are 8-10 week summer internships designed to introduce undergraduate students to biomedical and occupational health research. The Institute provides unique research opportunities across various basic and applied research areas. Whether studying molecules, cells, organ systems, non-human organisms or gathering data in community research, students will gain valuable experience conducting a specific project aligned with their host faculty member’s research program.
The deadline to apply is March 15, 2021 by 5:00 PM PST. To be eligible for our internship program, students must be Oregon residents or attend college in Oregon. Students also must be working toward their first 4-year degree. Students at all undergraduate levels may apply. The internship dates for 2021 run from 6/7/2021 – 6/21/2021 with an end date of 8/13/2021. For 2021, interns will be paid a total stipend of $2500 for an 8-10 week internship.

- We interviewed Summer Interns on our podcast, “What’s Work Got To Do With It?”. 2019 interns shared their experience working alongside institute scientists and touched on how their experience will help inform their future paths into research, health care and public health careers.
In 2020, we had to make the tough decision to cancel our Summer internship program due to the state of the pandemic and to protect the health and safety of students and the greater community. We are hopeful and excited to move forward and offer the Occupational Health Sciences’ Summer Student Research Awards once again.
