Public Health Scholarship Program

UIC students study together while sitting outside on UIC's campus.

The Public Health Scholarship Program at the UIC School of Public Health supports Master of Public Health (MPH) students to gain critical public health training and leadership skills to prepare them to respond to public health needs and public health emergencies statewide. The program is open to continuing and new MPH students, who meet the UIC in-state residency requirements, and identify as Black/African American, Hispanic, Native American or Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander. Applicants should demonstrate their desire to contribute to addressing health inequities in Medically Underserved Areas and/or other marginalized communities in the state of Illinois.

The current application period (deadline: November 27, 2022) is for students enrolling in the Spring 2023 semester.  Fall 2023 PHSP application details will be posted on this page in the near future.
