The South Dakota division of the federal program MCHC/RISE-UP. RISE-UP has a new summer program designed for junior, senior or recently graduated baccalaureate degree university students from underrepresented populations to increase exposure to the field of public health. As part of the program, up to 50 undergraduate students will have the opportunity to participate in a 10-week full time summer curriculum for one or more of three externships: Clinical, Community Engagement and Advocacy, or Research. The program provides free housing, a $3,500 stipend for the summer, a visit to Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, a trip to Atlanta, GA to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the externship experience.


Our site is located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. If you know of any students who might be interested in the program, please encourage them to visit Kennedy Krieger Institute’s website:
