Masters in Healthcare Administration Scholarships and Fellowships

Masters in Healthcare Administration Scholarships and Fellowships

The scholarship programs in healthcare can be found within individual universities as endowed grants that are administered by each school and supported by a personal trust or perhaps by an ongoing grant from a corporate donor. There are also several national programs sponsored by professional associations for various types of medical professionals, but most of those are designated for students who are working towards a degree in that particular medical specialty. From a scholarship perspective the MHA degree is training for a generalized, non-medical profession and so finding a relevant scholarship program may require looking into social service scholarship programs or public service fellowships oriented to services such as public health. Usually the most qualified advisors on scholarship availability are in the student financial aid office at a college or university. In addition, most universities have a database of available scholarships. You should consult both once you have selected a school or schools for your MHA application.

    • Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA) administers several scholarship programs through its central office. There are two scholarship programs that are funded on an annual basis, including one that provides a $40,000 award to each of two winning applicants. The other program provides scholarships to several applicants annually. There is also a book award program that provides a library of relevant works by respected scholars in the field to winning applicants.
    • Healthcare Information Management Systems Society offers scholarships to students who have shown academic achievement and who are working towards a degree related to healthcare information management. The Society is not more specific than that, and does not specify that the degree must be in an IT field. There are also several chapters of this organization with their own scholarship programs, including groups in New York State, New England, Delaware Valley, Northern California, and South Florida.
    • American College of Healthcare Executives has a scholarship program of its own that makes funds available to applicants through two programs, one of which is designated for minority applicants. The two programs, the Albert W. Dent Graduate Scholarship and the McGaw Scholarship Program award about twenty grants annually. ACHE also has an good database for regional grants and fellowships available to students in health administration.
    • Medical Group Management Association administers several scholarship programs for students working towards a degree relevant to medical group administration. Several are co-sponsored by the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE) which also funds scholarships through individual universities. In addition there are regional chapters of the MGMA that have their own scholarship programs: these include the MGMA Western Section, MGMA Midwest Section, and an affiliated organization called the Oncology Practice Alliance.
    • Institute for Diversity in Health Management has three scholarship programs for minority graduate students in the field of health care administration, pursuing a MPH, MPA, MHA, or a MBA with a relevant specialization. Awards range from $1,000 to $5,000; one of the programs is co-sponsored by the financial services firm Diversified Investment Advisors.
