Financial Aid

Like many professional degree programs, our MPH Program is a self-supporting program. Therefore, this program does not offer or accept tuition waivers. However, our program offers opportunities for financial assistance. Students may apply for hourly positions as: 1) graders for undergraduate courses, 2) graduate research assistants, who work on faculty research projects, and 3) graduate assistantships, who work within community organizations. Additionally, some MPH graduate students may obtain paid internships locally, nationally or internationally from their sponsoring organizations as they fulfill their applied practice experience requirements.

NOTE: Students should be aware that even if they are hired for assistantships, or awarded fellowships, the MPH Program does not accept tuition waivers, even if another department offers to grant the waiver.

General information on assistantships and employment opportunities can be found at:
