University of Washington Environmental Health Summer Research Program

The UW Environmental Health Research Experience Program (EHREP) is a funded, 10 week summer experience for undergraduates with an interest in environmental health sciences. EHREP provides students with hands on experience in laboratories of leading researchers, introduces them to key environmental and occupational health issues while offering research exposure that will help them become competitive for graduate school.  Students will work full-time under the supervision of a faculty mentor and will receive a stipend of $5,200.

One of the goals of this program is to increase and diversify the pool of future applicants for graduate study in this field, leading to more outstanding scientists selecting Environmental Health Sciences as a career focus.  We strongly encourage students who are underrepresented in the sciences to apply.

Dates: June 19th – August 16th 2017 in Seattle, WA
Stipend: $5,200
Application Deadline: February 1st 2017
