Note to Applicants

In response to COVID-19, we are continuing to waive the GRE for master’s programs in 2021.

The school maintains a dedicated COVID-19 webpage where we encourage you to stay up to date on the school’s operations, as well as the impact our faculty, alumni, and students are making on the front lines of this pandemic.

Scholarships for Returned U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers and Fulbright Student Grantees

View our Webinar To Learn More

The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine is proud to participate in Tulane University’s special initiative to make graduate study more accessible to U.S. Peace Corps volunteers (PCVs) and Fulbright student grantees called back from international placements because of COVID-19.

The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine is offering tuition scholarships between 25 and 50 percent of the entire cost of its graduate degree programs to returning Peace Corps volunteers and Fulbright student grantees. In some cases, these scholarships may be combined with other Tulane scholarships resulting in greater financial support, including full tuition plus stipends for some PhD programs. This significant scholarship initiative is being offered for Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 entrants.

No separate application is required, however, as part of the application process, PCV’s are asked to provide a copy of their “Description of Service” and Fulbright student grantees their “Terms and Conditions” or “Certificate of Completion.” Master’s degree applicants may also request that their application be reviewed without letters of recommendation.

Award amounts depend on applicant qualifications. Email sphtmadmissions@tulane.edu for more information.
