The PLLUSS Program is for undergraduate sophomore and junior students minoring or majoring in public health with at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4-point scale.

PLLUSS Program students will participate in public health research, education on health disparities and urban health issues, professional development, and community health promotion activities. Students will be encouraged to produce peer-reviewed publications and attend a national public health meeting. Students will receive mentorship with the goal of successful acceptance and completion of graduate or professional school in the public health area. Following Orientation (May 30, 2016 to June 3, 2016), KKI and UC-NIOSH scholars’ research experience will be June 3, 2016 to August 5, 2016.

A $3,500 stipend is provided to all program participants. Housing and round-trip travel is available for out-of-state participants.
