The OPHTC offers stipends to Hudson College of Public Health graduate students to complete program requirements such as a practicum, internship, dissertation, or other applied experiences. We announce student stipend opportunities annually during the fall semester.
“Student stipend” refers to the “placement of a student in a public or nonprofit health agency or organization, particularly one serving under-served areas and populations, to work on a discrete public health project. This placement should provide structured opportunities and/or experiences to allow the student to apply acquired knowledge and skills in a public health practice setting. Field experiences are expected to contribute to the mastery of public health competencies, with a focus on balancing the educational and practice needs of the student with the needs of the community. Field experiences should culminate with a deliverable of a poster presentation or scientific report that must include the following sections: abstract, introduction, methodology, findings, conclusions and discussion.” (https://r6phtc.sph.tulane.edu/field-placements/)
