Masters in Public Health Scholarships and Fellowships

There are several national organizations that support public health scholarship programs. There are also many universities which have endowed scholarships for this field that administer the scholarships in-house. Students can generally access a university scholarship database to see what is available in their field; it is also reasonable to ask the student financial aid office what scholarships exist within the university for graduate students in public health. There are also some internship and fellowship programs within the Department of Health & Human Services for students or professionals with career goals in public health. It is also worthwhile to explore the professional organizations related to healthcare which might have endowed scholarship programs that are administered by either a national office or by state or regional chapters of the organization.

  1. Hopkins Sommer Scholars Program is available through the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health for students who are working towards a MPH or a doctorate in the public health field. The scholarship pays full tuition at the school and provides over $19,000 for an annual living stipend. This program targets individuals who have the potential to be leaders in the development of public health policy in the future. Applicants are often mid-career professionals who are turning from some other occupation to a career in public health.
  2. U.S. Public Health Service has three programs that support public health students during their studies in return for a commitment to work during summer breaks or in an internship capacity with the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Two of them are relevant for public health students at various stages of graduate work in the field. One is the Junior Commissioned Officer Student Training and Extern Program and the other is the Senior Commissioned Officer Student Training and Extern Program. Both provide paid positions and public health training during extended school breaks.
  3. Albert Schweitzer Fellowship Program offers support for graduate students in health and human services in twelve different areas of the country. Applicants receive a $3,000 stipend over the course of the fellowship, which is a one-year interdisciplinary, mentored fellowship program focused on health-related community service and leadership development. Every year 200 Fellows are selected to work in the program, which is a carefully designed teaching and learning experience for those interested in a public health career.
  4. Association of Schools of Public Health partners in several fellowship programs that are conducted in collaboration with public health agencies, organizations, and government divisions with relevant public health concerns. Some are for graduate students in public health and some are for professionals who have completed their studies and are early in their careers. The opportunities range from paid research internships on such issues as women in science or HIV/AIDS international treatment; mentored positions with the National Cancer Institute and the National Center for Health Statistics; and several dozen other opportunities that are paid positions or that combine studies and fellowship work.
  5. National Environmental Health Association offers a scholarship program for undergraduate and graduate students. The graduate scholarship is available to those students or career professionals who are enrolled in a graduate program of studies in environmental health sciences and/or public health. The program is cosponsored by the American Academy of Sanitarians, an organization of professionals in the environmental health field.
