Tuition and Funding


[11/18/14] Notice to prospective and current students: Many scholarship deadline dates are fast approaching! Keep an eye on any funding opportunities you are tracking, and make sure to get all of your application materials together in anticipation of scholarship deadlines! Check out the scholarships tab below for ideas on how to direct your scholarship search. 


Tuition

Prospective students apply directly to the campus that hosts the track in which they are interested. Tuition and fee schedules, financial aid, scholarships, and fellowships are administered by each host campus.


Funding

“How can I pay for my graduate education?”


This is one of the most frequently asked questions we hear from students. The OMPH Program Office has some suggestions and tips to help you make a plan for financing your degree. 

Federal Aid & Student Loans

Federal Student Aid is often available to students with demonstrated financial need. Aid includes Grants & Scholarships, Loans, Work-Study Jobs, and Tax Benefits. To find out more about eligibility, explore the Office of the U.S. Department of Education website (https://studentaid.ed.gov/types/grants-scholarships) or go directly to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), located here: https://studentaid.ed.gov/fafsa.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll work with your home institution to find out how much you can get and when/how aid is disbursed:

Scholarships

There are many general graduate scholarships, as well as specific, targeted scholarships intended to support the educational goals of students in public health.

Some helpful tips for your scholarship search:

Graduate Assistantships and Outside Employment

Graduate Assistantships
Departments sometimes offer Graduate Assistantship positions, which offer full or partial tuition remission, as well as a stipend. The OMPH Program Office posts these opportunities as we become aware of them on the OMPH website: http://www.oregonmph.org/content/scholarships-graduate-assistantships

Outside Employment
Many students choose to finance their degree by maintaining outside employment while studying. The OMPH Program is designed to appeal to students at a variety of stages of professional development. As such, it caters to part-time and full-time students, working and non-working, returning and continuing. Degree completion can range from two to seven years. Many students maintain their full-time or part-time jobs, taking classes in the evenings, online, or on days off.

Paid Field Experiences
Some students arrange paid field experiences, which may help offset the cost of financing your degree. Paid field experiences are neither guaranteed, nor are they a requirement of agencies hosting MPH students as interns.
