If you submit a completed admissions application for the EMPH program by February 15, you will automatically be considered for EMPH scholarships. These scholarships are only offered to incoming degree-seeking EMPH students. This aid does not need to be repaid. We offer 4 different scholarships:
The Sencer Scholarship seeks candidates who have demonstrated leadership skills while employed at a state or local public health department.
The Hearst Scholarship is awarded to an applicant employed at a state or local health department in Georgia, ideally serving a rural community.
The Seretean Scholarship is awarded to a public health professional working outside of metro-Atlanta, GA.
Finally, we offer general merit scholarships for those applicants who have a strong academic record, show a passion and commitment to public health, and leadership traits.
Award amounts for each scholarship vary based on a number of criteria. Apply by our priority deadline of March 15 for scholarship consideration. Award notifications will begin in May.
