Public Health Academic Scholarship

The Master of Public Health Program at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler offers a limited academic scholarship for degree-seeking graduate students admitted into the MPH program.  These scholarship awards are for $250 per Credit Hour (CH) up to 3 CH ($750) per semester (typically fall and spring) based on availability of funds, number of applicants, and the academic merit of the student. If awarded, scholarship funds will be applied to the student’s account at the beginning of the award semester.  A new application is required before each semester.

In order to be initially considered for this scholarship, a student must:

  1. Be admitted to the UTHSCT MPH degree program (clear or provisional admission as defined in the General Academic Catalog).
  2. Be actively pursuing the MPH degree (neither on academic leave of absence nor in absentia).
  3. Have met all program prerequisite requirements.
  4. Have satisfactorily completed all previous coursework in the program (“B” or better).
  5. Enroll in and maintain at least 5 credit hours in the MPH program during the award semester.
  6. * Enroll in an OEHS elective course for the semester of the award.

To be awarded a continuing scholarship, the student must:

  1. Have satisfactorily completed all previous coursework in the program (“B” or better).
  2. Have a current, approved degree plan (on file in the program office).
  3. Have maintained the requisite course load for the previous award semester.
  4. Enroll in and maintain at least 5 credit hours in the MPH program during the award semester.
  5. * Continuing scholarships are not applicable to the Ina Brundrett Environmental Health Science Award.

* Indicates applicable to Ina Brundrett Environmental Health Science Award only.

The decision to award the scholarship will be determined by an institutional committee made up of members of the Graduate Faculty. The committee’s decision will be based on a composite evaluation of the student’s application, qualifications and the availability of funds. If awarded, the student must maintain regular enrolled student status during each semester of the award and must not be on scholastic probation, leave of absence, or registered in absentia. Failure to meet these conditions may result in termination of the scholarship. At the discretion of the committee, the scholarship may be reinstated once the student regains regular student status and/or adequately corrects any academic deficiencies.

The scholarship application will be available on the Student Financial Services page when applications are being accepted for the upcoming term.
