    • The UCLA Public Health Scholars Training Program
      • This fellowship provides undergraduate students the opportunity to address health disparities and explore the field of public health through hands-on training, structured workshops, group excursions, and leadership and professional development. The program offers scholars the opportunity to train at UCLA, to explore public health in one of the most diverse counties in the US, and to experience the city’s vibrant culture. We work with community-based organizations, health systems, and government agencies to offer field placement opportunities for scholars that focus on health equity.  Scholars are placed at these partnering organizations throughout Los Angeles where they are exposed to the spectrum of public health practice and provided with professional mentors. To supplement field work, scholars attend workshops, develop leadership and professional skills, and receive mentoring from graduate students and faculty. Scholars become a part of a motivated community invested in creating healthy futures for all. The application deadline is April 15, 2019.
