Funding for Academic Study

The Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety (NWCOHS) is one of the 17 Education and Research Centers (ERCs) funded by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. Currently, graduate students enrolled in the one of the NWCOHS academic training programs (Industrial Hygiene/Exposure Science, Occupational Health Nursing, Occupational Medical Residency, and Occupational Health Services Research) are eligible for traineeships which pay tuition, fees, and stipends that varies each year according to availability of funding and the number of occupational health trainees enrolled in the funded programs. To inquire further about traineeships, contact the Director of the Training Program in which you are interested.
