The Yale Center on Climate Change and Health (YCCCH) draws on the expertise of Yale faculty across multiple disciplines and schools to address one of the greatest public health and policy challenges of the 21st century: climate change. YCCCH offers courses on climate change and health at the Yale School of Public Health, hosts renowned speakers, and provides funding opportunities for student internships, conference attendance, and faculty research. About 40 faculty representing diverse disciplines contribute to the research and goals of YCCCH.
Student Associates serve one-year terms as ambassadors for YCCCH while engaging with a diverse community of like-minded individuals. Associates gain broad exposure to issues of climate change and health through small, seminar-style discussions and place-based learning experiences with field experts whom they help to select. Associates will also participate in additional programming such as workshops and skill-based training, film screenings, and student-led presentations/discussions. Student Associates are eligible to apply for YCCCH-supported conference travel grants and summer internships.
Program objectives and application requirements can be found here.
Accepted Student Associates will be notified by the week of August 23, 2021.
