Like many professional degree programs, our program does not offer or accept tuition waivers. However, there are still many 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. Additionally, some MPH graduate students may obtain paid internships locally, nationally, or internationally from their sponsoring organizations as they fulfill their Applied Practice Experience (APE) requirements.
General information on assistantships and employment opportunities can be found at: http://www.grad.illinois.edu/funding-jobs
Students may also explore financial aid through The Office of Student Financial Aid: https://www.osfa.illinois.edu
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.
