The Occupational Health Internship Program (OHIP) is a national summer program dedicated to help students learn about the field of occupational safety and health (OSH) from those most at stake: working people.
Graduate and undergraduate students can apply; some stipends are restricted to US citizens. Non-U.S. citizens must supply documentation of permission to work in the U.S. Undergraduates must have completed two years of college (i.e. juniors and seniors only). See Eligibility for more details.
OHIP seeks students with experience or interest in working with unions or social justice organizations, are organized and self-starting, have good team skills and ideally speak a second language of new immigrant workers: Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, etc. We encourage students from minority and recent immigrant groups to apply.
Undergraduate Students = $4,000 stipend
Graduate Students = $5,200 stipend
