Undergraduate Students

Conference to Increase Diversity and Mathematical Modeling in Public Health

Program dates: November 29-30, 2018
Applications for 2018 are closed

The Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health in conjunction with the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics hosts an annual Conference to Increase Diversity in Mathematical Modeling and Public Health. This conference is for undergraduate students from underrepresented groups who have an interest in public health and mathematical modeling of infectious diseases, and are studying quantitative disciplines at their home institutions.

Summer Program in Epidemiology

Check back in January for applications in summer 2019

This summer program is for undergraduate students from underrepresented groups interested in public health, with a focus on Epidemiology and Infectious Disease Epidemiology. Travel, lodging, and a program stipend are covered for accepted students. Read more about HSPH Summer Programs.

Fostering Advancement & Careers through Enrichment Training in Science (FACETS)

This school-wide 6 -week program provides students with academic and professional enrichment opportunities. Participants work on a research project with a faculty member in a selected area of interest, which can include social and behavioral science, health policy and management, global health and population, epidemiology, nutrition, or environmental health. The goal of the program is two-fold: to equip applicants with research and academic skills to increase competitiveness for graduate school and to provide students with a professional and personal network to help them navigate academia and beyond.
