HCHDS Summer Internship Program

The Summer Internship program at the Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions (HCHDS) accepts students from the Diversity Summer Internship Program at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and students from the Center for Diversity in Public Health Leadership Training at the Kennedy Krieger Institute.

The Diversity Summer Internship Program is a summer program for minority high school and undergraduate students to participate in research and academic activities within the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Students receive mentoring from public health faculty and senior level staff. Applications come from high school students and teachers from science departments in Baltimore area schools, and from undergraduate students from universities throughout the country (commonly minority serving institutions). The application includes a written statement of goals and interests, two letters of recommendation, and transcripts. Student research interests are matched with faculty mentors at the center, who then assign them projects and provide supervision as well as mentoring. At the end of the eight weeks, each student produces a technical report that summarizes his/her summer experience.

The HCHDS collaborates with the Center for Diversity in Public Health Leadership Training at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, which offers four funded summer internship programs.
