The application cycle for the 2017 HEAR Scholarships is now closed!

We are delighted to report that we have received 200 online applications this year through our new online portal. Whilst the application process is now over, you have until February 21 to ensure that all transcripts and letters of recommendation have been submitted. Please check in and ensure your recommenders have submitted their letters, and confirm that your advisors have uploaded your transcripts.

The hard work of evaluating applications and selecting potential scholars for interview starts now.  We look forward to meeting successful applicants during the interview process, and are excited to announce our HEAR Class of 2021 in the second week of May.

Good luck to all our applicants, and we hope to see you at the interviews!
