Welcome to the National Undergraduate Summer Public Health Program

The National Undergraduate Summer Public Health Program (NUSPHP) is funded through a cooperative agreement with The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and supports Columbia University, Kennedy Krieger Institute, University of Michigan & Morehouse College in their efforts to increase the number of underrepresented minority students who are engaged in public health education and training. The overall goal of the NUSPHP is to improve the representation of minority and other underrepresented populations in public health by increasing their awareness of public health service. The program will expose underrepresented undergraduate students to public health and the biomedical sciences. Participants of the program will receive ongoing training through a ten-week program, complemented by employment guidance and support for the consideration of public health as a long-term career choice.
