MPH Scholarships

Our MPH program offers a range of full- and partial-tuition merit-based scholarships to students who demonstrate academic achievement, leadership, and commitment to public health practice locally, nationally and internationally. Select scholarships are also available to students in partnership with a number of service corps programs—including Peace Corps, Teach For America, City Year, the Coro Fellows Program, and others.

A video interview may be required for merit scholarship consideration. To receive priority consideration for admission and scholarship awards, please apply for admission by one of our priority deadlines: December 15 for early action or March 1 for regular decision. After these priority deadlines, scholarships will be awarded based on the availability of funds. Scholarship deadlines are the same for both U.S. and international students.

NOTE: If you are applying to the MSW/MPH dual-degree program, you may be eligible to receive both MPH and MSW scholarships.
