All international** and U.S.** applicants admitted to the MPH program are considered for scholarship support. The admission application serves as the scholarship application.

The review process for scholarships is extremely competitive and only the highest-rated applicants receive funding. The review committee considers all aspects of the application, particularly personal statements, academic records and recommendation letters. Applicants are encouraged to submit all materials early in the cycle. Those who elect to submit their application without a standardized test score are at a disadvantage.

Important factors:

  • academic excellence
  • strong professional background
  • leadership potential in the public health field

** International candidates significantly improve the likelihood of a scholarship award, if they are awarded external funding. If you are applying for external support, please contact Paul Whong at pwhong@jhu.edu who can provide a letter of support to strengthen your application for these funding sources. This applies to US candidates as well.
