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:

  • letter of recommendation from your employer
  • Community Scholars Program application essay
  • current résumé or curriculum vitae
  • completed Community Scholars Program application

The next round of Community Scholars Awards will be for the Spring 2017 semester. Applicants to the MPH program for spring 2017 as well as students who began the MPH program in Fall of 2016 or Spring of 2016 will be eligible to apply.
