Fully Funded Master’s Programs in Public Health and Global Health

Boston University offers several scholarships for their MPH students

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 Statistics can lead to careers in research, teaching, academia, the medical field, and 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 doctoral 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 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.
