Future Public Health Leaders Program Summer Internship

The University of Michigan Future Public Health Leaders Program (UM-FPHLP) is a 10-week residential summer program funded by the CDC. UM-FPHLP provides students with opportunities for growth, learning and awareness in the field of public health. It is designed to encourage underrepresented college students to consider careers in public health. The program is intended for college students in their Sophomore, Junior or Senior year who are undecided about their career goals and are in good academic standing in their area of study. Students are not required to have previous experience in public health. Participants receive leadership training, orientation to the public health disciplines, and real-world work experience. The program is meant to foster knowledge of, excitement about, and commitment to health equity.

The program includes public health and career mentorship, hands-on and practical field experience, seminars, lectures and workshops with public health leaders. Accepted students receive a stipend, and travel and housing costs are covered.

Applications typically open early November.
