Financial Aid

Many Pitt Public Health doctoral students and some master’s students receive some type of financial aid in the form of student loans, full or partial scholarships, fellowships, student hourly jobs, or assistantships. While funding is not guaranteed for every student, Pitt Public Health provided more than $5 million in financial aid last year. Check the school-level tuition and financial aid overview to review options for financing your degree, then contact your department for more information.

Financial support is available for tuition and stipend for PhD students through a graduate research assistance program from the school. Stipends are made available from the department and from individual research laboratories. Although master’s students in general environmental health and/or environmental health risk assessment are eligible for support, it is expected that tuition and stipends for these students will be derived from external sources.

Although all PhD students are considered for financial aid per the department’s rolling admissions policy, it is best to have your application completed by February 15th. Most GSR appointments are awarded by March. MPH students are not eligible for aid from the department.
