Financial Aid for MS & PHD Candidates
Students in the MS program file their applications and financial aid materials through the Graduate School.
Financial assistance is provided to all PhD students in the form of YSPH Fellowships, Teaching Fellowships, Traineeships, and Research Assistantships. All admitted PhD students are guaranteed four years of 12-month stipend and tuition support. In addition to grants and fellowships for tuition and living costs, students receive a Health Award, which covers the full cost of single-student Yale Health Plan Hospitalization/Specialty Coverage.
