December 2021: The EH MATTERS program is not accepting applications at this time.
The EH MATTERS program application is an online form. In addition to filling out the application form, you will need to upload the following documents in PDF format before submitting your application. Although it is recommended to try and fill out the application in one sitting, the application may be saved and worked on at a different time. If you choose to save and continue your application later, a unique web link will be sent to the email you indicate.
Short answer essay questions: Through answering a series of questions, you will address your fit for the program.
Unofficial college transcripts: As part of your application, you will need to upload a copy of an unofficial transcript. An unofficial transcript will be issued by your university or college registrar’s office but may be accessed through a student portal. An unofficial transcript may also be a physical, official copy that you have opened and uploaded. Avoid uploading degree progress reports, grade audits, or similar printouts; these do not count as unofficial transcripts.
Acceptable unofficial transcripts from U.S. institutions must:
• Have the word “transcript” on the document
• Have the name of your institution attended or are attending
• Include the student’s name, program of study, and major of study
• Include a term-by-term breakdown of each completed course with its corresponding units and grade
• Be clearly legible
Two letters of recommendation:
One letter from USC or other college faculty; and one letter from a former work or internship supervisor.
Letters must be submitted by the person of reference through the recommendation portal
. Students must send the link to the recommendation portal to their people of reference and indicate who they have sent the link to in the online application.
