Funding for International Students.

There are many opportunities for scholarships outside of BU that we encourage students to explore. The scholarships below are very common and relevant to Public Health students, and should be considered by all eligible applicants. Finding funding is an ongoing process, and all students, new and continuing, should regularly apply for scholarship opportunities that will help fund their Public Health education.

Online Master of Public Health (MPH) international applicants are not eligible for visa sponsorship from Boston University.

After being academically admitted to one of our programs, all international applicants will be required to submit a completed International Student Data Form (ISDF) along with supporting financial documents that demonstrate your ability to pay for your expenses while studying at Boston University. Once this is received, applicants can be processed for appropriate immigration documents (I-20 or DS-2019).

The financial documents must either show funds in a bank account in your name, or you must submit a letter of sponsorship which indicates that your sponsor is willing and able to support you financially for your academic fees and living expenses throughout the duration of your studies at Boston University. Applicants must also include the relationship of the sponsor to the applicant on the form. All financial documents must be written in English and show the amounts converted into US dollars.

For your convenience, Boston University has prepared a Financial Sponsorship Certification form for this purpose. Review the Estimate of Expenses to determine the amount of funds you must have available.

Detailed information on funding requirements and immigration documentation can be found on the International Students & Scholars office website.
