Tuition Funding Options

Enrolling at Tulane is an investment in your future. To make your graduate education even more affordable, consider the following:

The FAFSA

United States citizens and Permanent Residents should complete the Free Application For Federal Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for federal financial aid, and work-study. Tulane SPHTM's school code is 002029. Tulane Financial Aid for Health Sciences can provide additional assistance.

Assistantships

Currents students may apply for a wide range of graduate, research, and teaching assistantships. These positions are based in the academic departments, research institutes, dean's office, and in conjunction with faculty research. Current students may also apply for positions throughout Tulane University by using the Workforce Management Office's job board and also Wavelink, a resource that advertises all professional opportunities available to SPHTM students. Positions are not available until the student is on campus.

Scholarships

Master's

Several partial master's scholarships are awarded annually through the Dean's Office drawn from endowed scholarships, Dean's Grants, department resources, and other scholarship funds. There is no separate application process for academic scholarships. Partial scholarship funding is based on a combination of merit, need, and other endowment requirements. All applications for accepted students with accompanying financial aid form are considered for possible funding. Please work with your department program manager to learn more.

The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) is also a useful resource for options on financing your degree. 

Doctoral

A limited number of full scholarships including tuition and a $24,000 stipend per year for two years are available through the Dean’s Research Council to support doctoral study. To be eligible for these scholarships, applications to the doctoral program should be submitted by December 1. Successful applicants must have been accepted into an SPHTM doctoral program, demonstrate a record of superior academic achievement with a GPA of 3.5 or higher, exhibit professional accomplishment, provide professional references, and have GRE scores in the upper percentiles.

No separate application is required academic scholarships. Refer to department contacts for more information.

Peace Corps

Current Masters International (MI) and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) may apply for Dean's Grant scholarships of $5,000, which are available for high-achieving MI and RPCV students.
