Hiring a student
The Rollins Earn and Learn (REAL) program gives students the opportunity to explore public health professions; make their educational experience more meaningful; and prepare them for a successful career while partnering with local, national, and global public health institutions. As a REAL partner, you are in the unique position to mentor and train future leaders of public health.
Students can earn up to $2,500 per semester during the academic year. The salary is split between Emory University and your organization 50/50, so the most you are responsible for under the program is $1,250 per semester.
REAL Employer Training
To ensure the student hiring process is smooth, the REAL program offers in-person, step-by-step employer trainings at Rollins at the beginning of June. Please check back later for more information on dates and times.
