Unfortunately, Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine currently has no federal financial aid, assistantships, scholarships or tuition waivers for international students. The Office of Financial Aid, however, has suggestions and links for international students on their website.
Each year, a limited number of Tulane SPHTM master's students receive partial scholarship funding based on a combination of need and other requirements. This aid comes from endowed scholarships as well as dean's grants. There is no separate application for any academic scholarships at the school. Your application and financial aid form are all that is needed for consideration.
Doctoral students are encouraged to submit an application to their desired degree program by December 1st in order to be considered for the Dean's Research Council scholarship, which includes full tuition and a $24,000 stipend per year. Applicants must display a record of superior academic and professional achievement, evidenced by successful completion of a master's program, professional references and combined verbal and quantitative GRE scores exceeding 1200 with strong quantitative abilities. A limited number of these Dean's Research Council scholarships are available. Again, there is no separate application for any academic scholarships at the school.
Leading up to the Centennial in 2012, the school has begun a campaign to increase the number of endowed scholarships at the school. More than $300,000 was raised during that campaign, and the drive continues to help make a public health education at Tulane more affordable.
