NIOSH Training Project Grant

The goals of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) training project grant (TPG) are:

  • to attract highly qualified and motivated students, including individuals with cultural or linguistic fluency related to underserved populations, into the industrial hygiene profession
  • to recruit students with diverse technical backgrounds who are interested in entering the industrial hygiene field
  • to recruit and train very promising research-oriented students in industrial hygiene research.

TPG funds are used to support six traineeship slots per year, to be filled by full-time masters-level or PhD trainees. All full-time MS students at the Department of Occupational and Environmental Health will be automatically considered as trainee candidates. Recipients of the NIOSH training grants need to be US citizens or permanent residents. MS trainees may be supported on the TPG for up to 24 months with partial tuition remission and monthly stipend.
