Scholarships

Jefferson College of Population Health (JCPH) offers merit and needs-based scholarship support when available. Concurrent and/or prior scholarship awards are a factor considered when awarding. 

MPH

JCPH automatically considers students for a merit scholarship which is based on the applicant’s undergraduate GPA (or graduate GPA, if applicable).

The PA/MPH program was established in 2019. This is the result of a collaboration between the Jefferson College of Population Health (JCPH) and the Jefferson College of Health Professions (JCHP). PA/MPH students are automatically considered for this partial scholarship which covers some tuition costs associated with the MPH portion of the dual degree.

The PCOM-JCPH DO/MPH program was established in 2014.  As part of our partnership with the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), DO/MPH students receive a partial scholarship towards the MPH portion of the dual degree. This scholarship was founded with the goal of increasing the number of physicians who have advanced training in public health and can promote wellness, assure quality, and address the social determinants of health in the healthcare setting and in the community.

As part of our partnership with the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM), MD/MPH students receive a scholarship that covers the tuition and fees for the MPH portion of the dual degree.  This scholarship was created with the goal of increasing the number of physicians who have advanced training in public health and can promote wellness, assure quality, and address the social determinants of health in the healthcare setting and in the community.

Eligible students automatically receive this scholarship when they are accepted into this dual degree program.  No additional application is necessary.
