One of the goals of the Johns Hopkins Fall Institute is to provide continuing public health educational opportunities to those who otherwise might not be able to participate in a formal degree program. To meet this goal, the Institute will offer a limited number of registration fee scholarships to support the participation of public health professionals in the Institute offerings. To be considered for a scholarship, the online scholarship application must be completed in its entirety and submitted for review by the Fall Institute Scholarship Review Committee. The Committee will review each scholarship application based on criteria established by the Fall Institute Oversight Committee. Please note that the tuition scholarships are only available for non-academic credit; JHSPH degree seeking students are not eligible to receive the non-credit tuition scholarship.
Each scholarship application must include the applicant’s CV or resume in PDF format, along with the answers to specific questions on the applicant’s current employment status, academic background, and how their participation in the Fall Institute will contribute to their career growth. It is vital that applicants pay careful attention to these questions and answer them as completely as possible. Applicants should be as concrete and specific as possible about their interests and proposed courses of study and provide evidence that they are well matched to the interests of the course. In the personal statement, applicants should emphasize what they will do with the information and skills learned in the course(s) and how this information will enhance their job performance or academic program work.
The priority deadline for scholarship consideration is July 18, 2016. Scholarship applications will be reviewed and considered on a space available basis through September 12, 2016.
To request a scholarship, please complete the online scholarship application. Upon successful submission of the scholarship application, an email will be sent confirming that the application has been received. Please keep a copy of this email as verification of your scholarship application submission.
Scholarships are awarded for the specific courses requested in the application and are not transferable to other courses, so applicants should make note of the course schedule before requesting a scholarship. Applicants not receiving a scholarship are welcome to register for courses, but must pay the registration fee in order to be confirmed in the course.
