Milken Institute School of Public Health and Health Services

All students in Milken Institute School graduate programs, as well as the Ph.D. program in Epidemiology offered in cooperation with the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, are automatically considered for merit scholarships. Teaching assistantships are available to M.S. students in Exercise Science and Ph.D. students in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Tuition fellowships may be available through the Physicians in Fellowship Programs or through tuition benefits for employees of the George Washington University.

Students seeking research assistant positions and teaching assistantships should contact their departments or check job postings available on the University or Milken Institute School website. For additional fellowship and scholarship opportunities available to current students, refer to the Apply Now! Calendar on the Milken Institute School website under "Careers, Jobs, Internships." Milken is a closed unit, which means it has its own sources of funding for fellowships, scholarships and assistantships.

Please also visit the Association of Schools & Programs of Public Health and the MPH Programs List of Scholarships and Fellowships for additional funding options.
