What is Public Health?

Public health is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals. More importantly, public health is YOUR health. Most people don't understand what public health is or how it impacts their daily lives. Those who work in public health have careers ranging from ergonomists to epidemiologists. Whether your interest is social work, research, management, or field work-- public health has a niche for you.

Funding

Federal, state, institutional, and private fund(s) used to assist eligible students in funding their education. Financial aid can be a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, waivers, and student employment. Scholarships and grants are considered “free money” and the student is not required to repay; however, loans and student employment are considered self-help aid and most loans require repayment when a student becomes enrolled less than half time or graduates.

Approximately 72% of students received some form of financial assistance. All forms of assistance continue to grow as well as the number of students receiving aid.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
