Deaf and hard of hearing research is crucial in discovering breakthroughs for those with hearing challenges. Every day, children are born with hearing deficits that can be corrected with the proper technology and therapies. None of this would be possible without medical scholars and professionals who spend countless hours on hearing research and breakthrough discoveries. Johns Hopkins Neuroscience Programs feature a unique opportunity for underrepresented minorities to participate in important deaf and hard of hearing research. Learn more about our program and apply online today.
The Johns Hopkins Neuroscience Scholars Program strives to mentor, develop, and foster scientific skills in undergraduates from underrepresented and deaf or hard-of-hearing (D/HH) backgrounds in PhD or MD/PhD programs in the neurosciences. We seek to diversify the workforce to better facilitate innovation and solutions in the neuroscience field. Evidence-based studies have shown that diverse teams generate better and more impactful solutions. In the neuroscience filed, specific groups are underrepresented and not engaged. We hope that this program will strengthen the scientific workforce for years to come.
What are the values of the Johns Hopkins Neuroscience Scholars Program? If you are a high school senior or undergraduate student and relate with the following values, we encourage you to apply: motivation to surmount obstacles that will come along the journey while remaining dedicated to achieving the goal; curiosity and the love of learning, receiving feedback, and exploring novel approaches; inclusivity and the ability to listen and contribute to diverse backgrounds, upbringings, beliefs and viewpoints.
Our mentoring team takes scholars through their college freshman year through their first year of graduate school, shaping them into the future neuroscientists leading the world of deaf and hard of hearing research. If you are a high school student who is interested in a future career in the neurosciences, and are from an underrepresented minority group or are deaf or hard of hearing, then apply the Johns Hopkins Neuroscience Scholars Program today.
