Applicants are encouraged to apply for financial aid and funding when completing their application.
The MPH program does not have funding to offer the majority of entering students. Tuition waivers are available on a case-by-case basis to incoming students from underrepresented U.S. populations and to students from low and middle income countries. Eligible students will be contacted when, and if, funding becomes available.
Searching for Funding at the UW
Graduate Funding Information Service (GFIS) - GFIS works with current and admitted UW graduate students, helping them identify and locate funding opportunities for graduate school-related expenses including tuition, research, conference and research travel.
Students often have success securing positions in disciplines where they have prior education and/or training. For example, having an undergraduate degree in Psychology could help secure a TA position job in an undergraduate Psychology course.
