There are several sources of funding for industrial hygiene students. Our students are commonly supported by faculty research grants and through traineeships or pilot grants from the following Centers:
- Heartland Center for Occupational Health & Safety
Supports graduate training in six areas including Industrial Hygiene. Students admitted to the Industrial Hygiene program are eligible for a traineeship. Support may be in the form of tuition, fees, and/or stipend. Funded positions sponsored by NIOSH are available for U.S. citizens only. The Heartland Center also provides funding through a competitive pilot grant process available to doctoral students after their first year. (funding source: NIOSH)
- Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health
Provides support for industrial hygiene students with a research focus on agricultural health through a competitive pilot grant program available to doctoral students after their first year. See http://www.public-health.uiowa.edu/GPCAH/research/ for current research projects.
Individual grants obtained by faculty may be another source of student support. These grants often contain budgeted funds for support of students as a graduate research assistant (GRA) which includes full tuition in addition to salary.
