Note to Applicants Regarding COVID-19
The Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine is committed to supporting its students – both current and future students. As COVID-19 causes disruptions in daily life throughout the world, we understand it’s affecting you, our applicants. In awareness of this fact, Tulane will waive your GRE test requirement if you are an applicant to a master's degree program. We also appreciate that the pandemic will affect each of us uniquely and in different, very personal ways. Please contact us at to discuss any concerns or difficulties you may be facing as a future Tulane student.

Rest assured that we will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis for summer and fall 2020 terms.

We’re here to support you and will offer updated guidance as this situation continues to evolve. 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

Learn more at our Webinar, Friday, April 17, 4pm central.

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 summer 2020, fall 2020, and spring 2021 entrants.

This initiative also features expedited admission for returning PCVs and Fulbright student grantees: applications for summer 2020 and fall 2020 will be reviewed and decisions rendered within 10 business days of submission of all requested application materials. 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.” For master’s degree applicants, the GRE is waived for summer 2020 and fall 2020 entrants. Master’s degree applicants may also request that their application be reviewed without letters of recommendation.

Please note applications for Spring 2021 will open in the late summer. Award amounts depend on applicant qualifications. Email Ian Shirt for more information.
