Summer Internships

2017 Summer Internship Program Details

Summer Student Research Awards are three-month paid summer internships designed to introduce undergraduate students to biomedical and occupational health research. To be eligible for an Institute-funded award, students must be Oregon residents or attend college in Oregon. Students at all undergraduate levels may apply.

The Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences provides unique research opportunities across a range of basic and applied research areas. Whether studying molecules, cells, organ systems, non-human organisms, or out gathering data in the community, student award winners will gain valuable experience conducting a specific project aligned with their host faculty member’s research program.

Student interns are required to present their findings in a scientific poster session in August. Top posters are recognized with awards. Families and friends are welcome to come see your work!

Prior to applying we recommend that you review our program's Application Instructions and FAQs.

Application Period Now Closed

The deadline for the 2017 Student Award Applications has passed and the process of reviewing the applications has begun. We wish to thank all those who applied. For applicants in whom someone on our faculty expresses an interest, we will be contacting those candidates to set up appointments for interviews.

Please check back next year for the 2018 awards.
