Uganda Village Project Summer Internship

Thursday, Jan 18, 2018

Application deadline: February 1, reviewed on rolling basis

We have appreciated having the analytical insight and excellent work ethic of university students from around the world  in our past intern cohorts, and would like to invite your high-quality students to apply to our 2018 intern cohort.

As a grassroots public health organization working in rural villages, Uganda Village Project offers interns hands-on experience in the following areas:

  • Monitoring and Evaluation: collecting household surveys  to measure knowledge and behaviors
  • Work in an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural team (interns from Uganda, US, Europe, Australia, Zimbabwe and more)
  • Collaborate with community leaders to identify and address a village’s most pressing health concerns
  • Conduct educational sessions (sensitizations) in coordination with Village Health Team Members (VHTs)

Our internship has also served as a practicum for some students, and we encourage students with varying levels of travel and professional experience to apply. To give you more insight into the experience of our interns, we have attached a blog post from our team from Muira village in 2017.

We would appreciate if you could pass along this opportunity to your students. Regular applications are due 1st February 2018. While we do accept applications on a rolling basis after this date, we cannot guarantee space will still be available.

If you would like more detailed information, please feel free to contact me directly to schedule some time to talk or visit our website to learn more.
