Additional Scholarships

MHA Funding

Each year, we award scholarships to high-ability students. More than half of incoming Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) students receive scholarship support. We encourage all applicants to contact us to inquire about opportunities for funding your graduate education.

Since the majority of scholarships are awarded through the MHA program, no additional application forms are required. Scholarship awards are based on academic performance, interview ratings, and letters of reference. Typically, students will receive scholarship information the week after an admission is communicated.

Division of Health Policy & Management (HPM) Scholarships

All admitted students will be considered for an HPM scholarship, based upon promise in the field of healthcare administration including the School of Public Health Dean’s Scholarship. We also have non-resident tuition scholarships available. No separate application is necessary.

In awarding funds, the program considers the program cost of both years and awards scholarships accordingly.  Since dual degree MHA-MBA students in their second year of students are enrolled as MBA students, they have limited access to MHA scholarship funds their second year.

In addition to the program scholarships, students may wish to investigate scholarships offered through the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA), the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), the National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE), the U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Air Force, to name a few.

Graduate Assistantships

A graduate assistantship is an on-campus, part-time job that includes attractive benefits. Assistantships are very competitive to obtain as the demand exceeds the number of available positions, but students with quantitative research skills using SAS, Stata, and similar analytic tools have a competitive advantage when seeking a research assistantship.

The Division of Health Policy & Management has Research Assistant (RA) positions and a few Teaching Assistant (TA) positions. Students may also look for graduate assistantship jobs outside of the department through the University’s Office of Human Resources Graduate Assistant Employment page.
