Scholars in Hearing and Aging Research Program (SHARP)

About


The Scholars in Hearing and Aging Research Program (SHARP) is designed for individuals who are applying for a master’s or doctoral degree program (e.g., MPH, MHS, PhD) at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health (JHSPH) and are interested in aging, hearing, and public health. Students accepted into SHARP will be assigned an academic and research mentor at the Cochlear Center and take part in all Center training activities in conjunction with the requirements and activities of their master’s or doctoral program.


Who can apply?


Individuals applying for a JHSPH master’s or doctoral degree program with a strong interest in aging, hearing, and public health may apply for the SHARP Program. MPH students pursuing full- or part-time degrees are eligible to apply.

 

Individuals must separately apply to JHSPH and SHARP. Acceptance into SHARP is contingent on being accepted into JHSPH. The Cochlear Center only reviews SHARP applications and has no influence on the JHSPH application and review process of prospective students.
