  • Student Projects

    Northwest Center for Public Health Practice supports a variety of graduate student projects in Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Oregon

These projects fall into two categories—collaborative projects and field placements.   Proposals will be accepted through the first two weeks of every quarter. Students will be funded for the quarter in which they can complete the bulk of their project.
