How to Apply
The ASH training program is available to students seeking MPH, DrPH and PhD degrees within the College of Public Health. Students must first seek admission to the University of Kentucky's College of Public Health graduate program.
Selection criteria for students to receive CARERC ASH training funds are made through a separate competitive process once admission to the College of Public Health has been secured.
The ASH program evaluates all of the admitted students as potential candidates for the ASH training program, paying particular attention to potential background and interest in agricultural health and safety. ASH trainees are only appointed when they present an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher, unless they provide evidence of graduate level coursework at a GPA of 3.0 or higher or significant, pertinent work experience since obtaining the undergraduate degree, along with excellent letters of recommendation.
Interested students are expected to prepare a Declaration of Interest statement in agricultural health and safety. This statement should be directed to the attention of:
