Students

 

Program

 

The Cochlear Center provides fellowships for pre- and postdoctoral trainees and scholarships for students enrolled in degree-bearing programs at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. Trainees must be conducting research in areas consistent with the Center’s mission and will be assigned a mentor at the Cochlear Center.

 

For students pursuing a degree at the Bloomberg School of Public Health (e.g., MPH, PhD, DrPH), receipt of Cochlear Center funding is contingent on being accepted into the chosen degree program. The Cochlear Center has no influence on the application and review process for candidates applying to these degree programs.

 

Eligibility

 

Pre-doctoral fellowship applicants must already have their bachelor’s degree at the time of application and be enrolled in an accredited doctoral (PhD, MD, AuD, etc.) program. Postdoctoral fellowship applicants must have their doctoral degree at the time of application (or be close to imminent graduation). Fellowships can be from one to three years and stipends are determined by the NIH payscale.

 

For students enrolled in a degree-bearing program at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (e.g., MPH, PhD, Dr.PH), candidates should apply to the chosen degree program per the program’s instructions. Scholarship support from the Cochlear Center will be considered on an individual basis pending availability of funds and the strength of the candidate’s application. Candidates must be accepted into the degree program to be considered for Cochlear Center scholarship support.
