Identifying Funding Resources for Education and Research
Identifying funding sources for your education or for your research interests can be challenging; requiring initiative, creativity and perseverance.
Many funding sources are available for both academic programs and research endeavors in the US and abroad, and the Bloomberg School has highlighted some options below. Seekers should not limit themselves to the types of funding that are listed, but should cast a wide net in identifying funding for their educations.
Types of funding include loans, scholarships, student employment, travel awards and grants. Successful individuals often utilize more than one of the sources identified and are watchful for additional opportunities. Funding is available for students at all levels of their academic pursuits.
JHSPH and JHU Resources
The Bloomberg School and the Johns Hopkins University provide assistance through federal loans, private loans, grants and federal work study programs. JHSPH and JHU scholarships are available to qualified students as well.
