Financial Aid & Scholarships
The Illinois MPH Program provides scholarships based on merit and/or need. There is no separate scholarship application. The application materials a student submits for admission are used to determine scholarship awards.
In order to be considered for a scholarship, applications must be submitted by the final deadline of March 1st.
Students who are offered a scholarship will be notified in March.
FINANCIAL AID & OTHER SCHOLARSHIPS
Like many professional degree programs, the MPH program is self-supporting and does not offer or accept tuition waivers. This means our students are not eligible for tuition waiver-based teaching or research assistantships.
However, there are many opportunities for financial assistance which can include:
- Program-specific scholarships (see above)
- The Scholarship Finder document provides access to potential awards and scholarships that may be of interest for MPH Students
- Graduate hourly positions offered on-campus (e.g. graders, research) that are willing to support an hourly position instead of providing a waiver
- Paid internships during the summer Applied Practice Experience (internship)
- Off-campus employment
- Financial Aid
