Boston University offers several scholarships for Master’s in Public Health (MPH) students to fully fund their master’s degree.

As part of our series How to Fully Fund Your Master’s Degree, here is a list of universities that fully fund the studies of all or most of their Master’s in Public Health students. A Master’s Degree in Public Health can lead to a career as a Healthcare Administrator, Consultant, Public Health Project Manager, Public Health Educator, and many more.

“Full funding” is a financial aid package for full-time students that includes full tuition remission as well as an annual stipend or salary during the entire program, which for Master’s degrees is usually 1-2 years. Funding usually comes with the expectation that students will teach or complete research in their field of study. Not all universities fully fund their master’s students, which is why researching the financial aid offerings of many different programs, including small and lesser-known schools both in the U.S. and abroad, is essential.

The free ProFellow database for graduate and doctoral study also spotlights external funding opportunities for graduate school, including dissertation research, fieldwork, language study, and summer work experiences.
