2019 Summer internship program details

Occupational Health Sciences' 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.
