NEPHIP InternWe Have the Perfect Intern For You!

It’s been a couple of tough years and we know environmental health programs have been stretched even more than usual. Consider participating in the National Environmental Public Health Internship Program (NEPHIP) this summer to support your work.

NEPHIP isn’t like other internships. NEPHIP’s focus is on building the EH workforce by exposing EH students to the important work of state, tribal, local, and territorial public health departments, and possible career opportunities.


  • EH Educated: Interns are specifically studying environmental health at EHAC-accredited schools
  • Focused Period: The internship is 400 hours for 10 straight weeks
  • Paid: Interns are supported with a healthy stipend so they can focus on their internship
  • Support Package: There is no cost to your organization to host an intern and support packages are available to help offset any intern-related costs
  • Matched: Interns and health departments are hand matched to ensure internships meet the needs of everyone
  • Give Back: Your experienced EH professionals get to provide firsthand perspectives, connections, and inspiration to the next generation

If you or a colleagues have a project in mind, consider applying today. Applications are due by March 9.
