Work-study opportunities are also available for undergraduate students. The Work Study Program offers students various clerical/filing and student trainee occupations during the academic year and/or summer months (June/July – September.) Students must apply for and be awarded federally-sponsored college work-study through their academic institution to be eligible for the work study program. Students working through the Work Study Program are not CDC/ATSDR employees and are not eligible for federal benefits.

Part-time and full-time details at CDC TTO are available for employees and contractors currently employed by the CDC. However TTO does NOT currently have any funding for details. Thus, it is the detailees responsibility to provide supervisory authorization and FTE funding for their detail.
