Brown School Partners with Truman Foundation to Provide Tuition Support

Public Health; Social Work; Students

The Brown School is partnering with the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation to offer scholarships to graduate students pursuing a public service-oriented degree.

Truman Scholars will receive up to $30,000 for graduate or professional school, as well as leadership training, and opportunities for internships and employment with the federal government. The Brown School will match the $30,000 Truman Scholarship with a Dean’s Scholarship for up to five students admitted to the following degree programs: Master of Social Work, Master of Public Health, Master of Social Work/Master of Social Policy dual degree, and Master of Public Health/Master of Social Policy dual degree.

The new scholarship opportunity builds on a multi-decade relationship between Washington University and the Truman Foundation. Since 1977, WashU has been home to 18 undergraduate Truman Scholars.

This is the Truman Foundation’s first graduate partnership in Missouri – Harry Truman’s home state. Established by Congress in 1975 as the living memorial to President Harry S. Truman and national monument to public service, the Truman Scholarship carries the legacy of the 33rd President by supporting and inspiring the next generation of public service leaders,
