Financing Your Public Health Education

We make every effort to ensure that current students and applicants receive as much financial assistance as possible through merit-based scholarships, grants and student loans.


School of Public Health Scholarships

Full-time MPH students are considered for scholarships based upon academic merit, financial need and fit with Dornsife School of Public Health. Nearly three-quarters of the Full-time MPH program class of 2016 received some financial support. MS applicants should contact the department directly to learn more about scholarship opportunities. Approximately two-thirds of students enrolled full-time in the doctoral programs receive some type of tuition funding and/or stipend. Find out more.

External Scholarships

Drexel University is pleased to partner with City Year to offer a 25% annual scholarship for both the full-time and Executive Master’s in Public Health (MPH) programs. Find out more

Additionally, students can apply for scholarships available through various companies and public health-related agencies. For more information, please click here.

Teaching and Research Assistants

Full-time doctoral students serve as teaching and/or research assistants as part of their tuition funding and stipend.

Once enrolled in the program, many full-time MPH and MS students work on a part-time basis as research assistants for faculty members or for research centers at Dornsife School of Public Health and throughout the University. Second-year MPH students are eligible to be teaching assistants for first-year MPH courses. These positions are paid on an hourly basis, and given to students in good academic standing. Students also work in such departments as athletics and recreation and the library.
