Supporting Undergraduate Research Experiences in Environmental Health (SURE-EH)
– Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), one of the largest research agencies dedicated to improving human health, has a funded opportunity for underrepresented students at UW to conduct environmental health science-related research alongside faculty in the School of Public Health. This new program, Supporting Undergraduate Research Experiences in Environmental Health (SURE-EH) is now accepting applications from underrepresented UW students.
SURE-EH provides a meaningful opportunity to work with experienced faculty on a research project addressing the relationship between environmental exposures and human health. Work alongside faculty as a paid student researcher for up to 2 years, full-time during summer and part-time during the academic year.

SURE-EH will provide academic opportunities to complement the research experience, including course recommendations, seminars, workshops, and research symposia. These educational opportunities will enhance your breadth and depth of the SURE-EH’s environmental health science training, and help you become a leader in the field of environmental health sciences.
