Diversity Summer Internship Program (DSIP) Faculty Information
DSIP 2016 Call for Faculty Mentors, Projects, and Speakers
Faculty support is critical to the success of the Diversity Summer Internship Program. We are currently seeking faculty mentors and projects for the summer of 2016. The program runs from the end of May through early August. Faculty from across all departments in the Bloomberg School of Public Health are invited to submit proposals, using the Project Proposal Form, now through February 6, 2016. Examples of project duties include:
- Laboratory-based research
- Data collection and/or analysis
- Literature reviews
- Aiding in the development of communications materials
- Community outreach
While exact hours may vary, interns are expected to work 35-40 hours/week on their research project. In addition, interns attend mandatory Monday seminars, complete weekly assignments, draft a research paper, prepare and execute an oral presentation, and design a research poster.

Funding an intern is not a requirement for DSIP faculty but in order to help us fill all projects and provide the most opportunities, we welcome financial contributions when available. Some faculty members may also be eligible for Diversity Supplement support from the NIH.
Guest Speakers Needed
Faculty in the Bloomberg School of Public Health are also invited to participate in DSIP by presenting their work (60-90 minutes) during Monday morning seminars throughout the program beginning the first week of June. Interested faculty can email Jessica Harrington with preferred dates and topic information.
