Center Student Investigator Program

The Center Student Investigator Program (CSI) provides training, outreach, and research opportunities for students to gain knowledge and skills to address Asian American health disparities. Through their internship experience at CSAAH, students will receive trainings through seminars which aim to provide an understanding of culturally and linguistically appropriate approaches to research, outreach, community partnerships, and care delivery in Asian American populations. More than 135 high school, college, and graduate students, as well as post-graduate health professionals, have successfully completed the CSI Program.

Whether they are involved in the Center’s current projects or student-initiated projects, Center Student Investigators will have the opportunity to develop skills such as survey design, data collection and analysis, and asset mapping which they can apply through activities such as community health needs assessments and windshield tours. They will also have opportunities to network with other health professionals and learn about the various opportunities that one can have in the health field.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. If you are interested in the CSI Program, please submit your cover letter, resume, and completed application form.To submit your application, or for questions, please contact Lynna Zhong at
