Student fellows will work alongside OSU Extension Service faculty and staff who are working across the state to improve community health. The three community-based fellowships are located in Hood River, Redmond and Corvallis, Oregon. Students are expected to live in the local community for the duration of the summer 2020 fellowship. Some assistance finding local housing may be available. The application deadline is April 18, 2020.

This is a paid position that will help you make connections with faculty and peers and develop resume-building leadership skills! We are particularly interested in undergraduate students who identify as first generation, low-income, underrepresented, transfer, or have experience in the University Exploratory Studies Program.
