Welcome to CULTURALLY SMART

The Student Multicultural Awareness & Research Training Program

Culturally SMART is an intensive multi-week fellowship for historically underrepresented graduate students in communication sciences and disorders and related disciplines.  Fellows will learn cultural competency and gain direct clinical research mentorship in multicultural issues.  At the end of the program, fellows will have the opportunity to present their work at a conference and/or publish in a scholarly journal.  Stipends are also provided to help offset costs associated with participation.  

This program is currently supported by a multicultural activities grant from the American Speech Language and Hearing Association awarded to Drs. Jennifer Rae Myers and Sulare Telford Rose.
