The Bloomberg School awards several competitive, merit-based scholarships to accepted students who are pursuing a full-time degree program.

If you are in the process of applying, keep in mind that your online application also serves as your scholarship application. Typically, no additional forms need to be submitted.

All of the materials you submit with your online application are important for the scholarship review process – especially personal statements, academic records and letters of recommendation.


Most institutional scholarships are administered by the academic departments or the MPH program office. Examples of institutional scholarships include the Sommer Scholars, Brown Scholars, and Johnson & Johnson Scholars. Availability of these scholarships can vary by department, degree program and from year to year.


Some departments offer a Master’s Tuition Scholarship (MTS) to students in good academic standing pursuing their second year of study in a two-year master’s program. The scholarship provides a 75% discount in the second year’s tuition. Contact your program of interest for information regarding MTS eligibility.

Welch Scholarship

All new Online/Part-time MPH students beginning the program effective January 2016 will be awarded the new $20,000 Welch Scholarship. This scholarship is in honor of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s 100th anniversary and our founding Dean William Henry Welch.

The Welch Scholarship is designated for tuition costs and will be disbursed incrementally for each credit (up to 80 credits) for students enrolled in the online/part-time MPH program. This funding can be used for online, in-person, institute or regular term courses.


While the Bloomberg School provides scholarships for many students, there are some students we are unable to fund. These students will need to obtain outside funding. Resources for outside funding include the Bloomberg School’s Funding Opportunities Database, the Funding Resource Guide and the ASPPH “Financing Your Degree”.

In addition to scholarships and the funding found in the resources above, other sources of funding include federal aid and private loans. You can learn more about these sources from our Financial Aid Office.
