Community Scholars Program

The Community Scholars Program encourages experienced public health professionals to pursue advanced study for an MPH while continuing their full-time employment. Up to ten (10) half-tuition scholarships are awarded annually to MPH degree candidates (dual degree candidates are NOT eligible). Eligible applicants must have at least two years of experience and be currently employed, on a full-time basis, in public health-related nonprofit organizations or government agencies. Community Scholars must remain employed and pursue their MPH on a part-time basis.

Applicants interested in the Community Scholars Program must submit the following materials:

  • completed Community Scholars Program application and application essay (application available soon)
  • letter of recommendation from your employer
  • current résumé or curriculum vitae

The next round of Community Scholars Awards will be for the Spring 2018 semester. Applicants to the MPH program for spring 2018 as well as students who begin the program fall 2017 will be eligible to apply.
