The Public Health and Professional Degree (PHPD) Programs at Tufts University School of Medicine have a limited number of need-based scholarships for full-time students who are U.S. Citizens/permanent residents. Due to limited resources, financial assistance is not available for international students. In addition to scholarships, there are also teaching and research assistantships available.
In an effort to attract diverse and academically talented students, the MPH, MS - Health Communication, MS-Pain, Research, Education and Policy, MS – Biomedical Sciences Programs offer a combination of merit/need scholarships based on the strength of a candidate's application and financial need. There is no additional application process for these scholarships; based on the strength of their application all admitted students are automatically considered for scholarship aid. The Admissions Committee makes referrals to the Scholarship Committee for consideration.
Because financial need is taken into consideration, it’s important that applicants complete the financial aid process as soon as possible. Students will be required to submit a Tufts Institutional Financial Aid Application, 2017-2018 FAFSA, and any supplemental documents required by the Office of Financial Aid if they wish to be considered. Please ensure that your application is submitted to the Office of Financial Aid by their noted deadline. The priority deadline for 2017-18 is February 17th, 2017.
Scholarships are awarded for the academic year (fall/spring semesters only) during the start of the fall semester to eligible, incoming full-time students only. Scholarships are not awarded during the spring admissions cycle.
