The Institute for Health and Social Policy is now recruiting students for its Fall 2014 Student Programs. Open to both graduate and undergraduate students, the IHSP Internship program is a 14 week on-campus work experience opportunity that includes training in translating research into policy. The Research Fellowship Program is a year-long opportunity for outstanding graduate students whose current or proposed dissertation topics are interdisciplinary and connected to understanding how social conditions impact population health and welfare. Awards are offered for both programs.
