CT PHFP Fellowship Stipend Application Process and Instructions
Are you a student with a project or field placement with a Connecticut public health agency? Paid fellowships are available to college and university students interested in exploring careers in Connecticut’s public health system.
The eligible student must be:
- a 3rd or 4th-year undergraduate or graduate student in an accredited academic institution,
- US citizen, non-citizen US national, or a foreign national having a visa permitting permanent resident of the United States and
- Not receiving other federals funds for their field placement
Students interested in a paid fellowship with a public health agency are encouraged to contact an agency or unit that matches their academic and professional interests. Together with the public health agency or preceptor, a fellowship placement can develop a role that explores a public health career, build competencies, and supports the agency’s mission.
The host agency preceptor must complete the Field Placement Proposal Application, and it must be approved by PHFP before a Fellowship Stipend Application is submitted.
