Diversity Summer Internship Program (DSIP) Faculty Information

DSIP 2018 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 2018. The program runs May 29 -August 3, 2018.  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 1, 2018. Examples of project duties include:

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. For more information about mentor expectations, click here. Interns are funded through various offices, fellowships, and grants.


Guest Speakers Needed

Faculty in the Bloomberg School of Public Health are also invited to participate in DSIP by presenting their work during Monday morning hour-long seminars throughout the program beginning the first week of June. Interested faculty can email Jessica Harrington with preferred dates and topic information.
