From 2007-2014, The Center for Global Health awarded up to 8 full tuition scholarships yearly to the masters' programs at the Bloomberg School of Public Health.
With our financial support, our scholarship winners received a high-quality education that enabled them to impact health in developing countries upon their graduation.
"We are pleased to support these seven promising students in their public health work," says Thomas Quinn, MD, the Center's Director. "The Center works to further global health education among the Johns Hopkins community, and these students already have impressive global health experience they can draw from as they complete their studies. We look forward to witnessing all they will accomplish in their careers."
The Center has temporarily suspended its scholarship program. If you would like to support the Global Health Scholarship program please considering donating to the Center for Global Health.
