Master’s Tuition Scholarship (MTS)
All full-time, second-year students in good academic standing are eligible for a Master’s Tuition Scholarship (MTS) from the Bloomberg School. The MTS provides 75 percent tuition support during the second year of the program. Students must successfully complete all required program courses and accumulate a minimum of 64 credits before the department will recommend the student for the scholarship. This scholarship provides a 75 percent tuition scholarship during this stage of the program. Once the scholarship has been awarded, the student must maintain a full time registration for the entire period of the award.
Additionally, first-year full time MS-OEH students are eligible for a limited number of partial-tuition awards from The NIOSH Education and Research Center (ERC) to be used toward full-time study. As decided by a committee of faculty members, the awards are offered to selected students based on their prior academic achievements and professional potential. Award decisions are made during the admissions process and communicated to students in their letters of acceptance.
Several departmental courses require teaching assistance. Full time students selected as Teaching Assistants (TAs) gain experience in teaching and receive compensation for their efforts. Open positions will be advertised via email by the department’s Academic Program Administrator before the start of each term.
Qualifying students may be offered a wide array of loans including Federal Perkins loans and Federal Direct Student loans (unsubsidized and Graduate PLUS). The school also participates in the Federal Work-Study Program. The Financial Aid Office does not offer need-based grant assistance. To apply for financial aid, please visit the Office of Student Financial Services.
