Applications for the EHS-TRUE program are done online through the regular UBRP application process. Begin by creating a UBRP account from the log in form on the top right corner of the UBRP homepage. Once logged in, you will see a link to the EHS-TRUE application. You will be asked to write a personal statement as a part of the application. Please be sure to include the reason(s) you want to participate in the EHS-TRUE Program. A good resource for general information regarding environmental health science is the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (www.niehs.nih.gov)
Applications are due February 1 at 5:00 pm. Applicants will be screened and finalists will be interviewed the first two weeks of February. Those selected for the program will be notified by the end of February and will have the month of March to interview with prospective mentors. Mentor/mentee pairings will be finalized by April 1 and the mentor will complete a commitment form indicating who the student’s immediate supervisor and time approver are. Applicants selected to participate must attend a payroll meeting in early April, UBRP summer orientation (May 15, 2017) and the UBRP Ethics Retreat (May 16 & 17, 2017).
All applications must be done online through the UBRP application portal. Paper applications WILL NOT be accepted.
