Master's Funding Opportunities
- MHS and ScM students are eligible for a limited number of partial-tuition scholarships to be used toward full-time study. As decided by a committee of faculty members, scholarships are offered to selected students based on their prior academic achievements and experience. Departmental scholarship decisions are made during the admissions process and communicated to students in their letters of acceptance.
Master’s Tuition Scholarship (MTS)
- All full-time, second-year MSPH and ScM students in good academic standing are eligible for a Master’s Tuition Scholarship (MTS) from the Bloomberg School. The MTS provides 75% tuition support during the second year of the program. Students must successfully complete all required program courses and accumulate a minimum of 64 credits before the department will recommend the student for the scholarship. Once the scholarship has been awarded, the student must maintain a full time registration for the entire period of the award.
- First-year full-time MSPH OEH students are eligible for a limited number of partial-tuition awards from The NIOSH Education and Research Center (ERC) to be used toward full-time study. As decided by a committee of faculty members, the awards are offered to selected students based on their prior academic achievements and professional potential. Award decisions are made during the admissions process and communicated to students in their letters of acceptance.
PhD Funding Opportunities
Typically, students admitted to the PhD program are offered full funding (matriculation fee, tuition, and health insurance) and a stipend for living expenses. Given that the admissions process is highly competitive, be sure to submit your application – with all supporting documents – by the published deadline.
DrPH Funding Opportunities
Students enrolled in the DrPH program finance their graduate studies through a variety of funding options.
- The Center for a Livable Future (CLF) provides Opportunities for Research Support and Collaboration.
- Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information on loans or federal aid.
- Eligible accepted applicants for the full-time DrPH will automatically be considered for departmental training program support. Departmental support decisions are made during the admissions process and communicated to students in their letters of acceptance.
Other Funding Opportunities
Teaching Assistants (TAs)
- Several departmental courses require teaching assistance. Students selected as Teaching Assistants (TAs) gain experience in teaching and receive compensation for their efforts. Open positions will be advertised via email by the department’s Academic Program Manager before the start of each term.
- Qualifying students may be offered a wide array of loans including Federal Perkins loans and Federal Direct Student loans (unsubsidized and Graduate PLUS). The school also participates in the Federal Work-Study Program. The Financial Aid Office does not offer need-based grant assistance. To apply for financial aid, please visit the Office of Student Financial Services.
Please note that tuition and fees are the same for U.S. and international students.
