SRHT features renowned faculty, cutting-edge research, six laboratories and centers, and a diverse student body of more than 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students each year. Each major requires one or more internship or clinical experiences, ensuring that students graduate not just with a transcript but with a resume that demonstrates their professional aptitude and skills.

This application is for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Admissions applications, academic transcripts, undergraduate and graduate GPAs, references, standardized test scores (if taken), and honors and awards will be used as the primary sources of information in determining awards. Recipients of CEHD assistantships, both new and continuing students, are selected primarily on the basis of academic merit.
