The Julia Jones Matthews School of Population and Public Health seeks to recruit and retain MPH students, to serve as Public Health Scholars. In support of this goal, the School will award non-competitive scholarships of $5,000 to selected students for the Fall and Spring semesters of appointment as a scholar. Students must be full time.
Scholarships (up to 10 per year) will be awarded to students that have been accepted into the Master of Public Health program or other programs of the school, and who agree to provide service learning activities in their communities. “Service-learning” is defined as a structured learning experience that combines community service with preparation and reflection. Students engaged in service-learning provide community service in response to community-identified concerns and learn about the context in which the service is provided, the connection between their service and their academic coursework, and their roles as citizens and professionals.
The recipients should show a commitment to the TTUHSC values through their service learning projects as well as their well reflections on the TTUHSC, the School, and the Office of the President. Students will be required to provide reflection papers at the end of each semester of the year that they are scholars. Scholars will be required to attend in monthly meetings where they will receive guidance on service-learning activities as well as mentoring and career advising in public health.
The benefits and monetary value of the scholarship are unknown
- To maintain eligibility for the scholarship, students must maintain full time status with a minimum of 9 credit hours in the Fall and Spring semesters. If a student drops below full-time status, they will lose their scholarship for the next semester. Students must also maintain satisfactory progress on their degree plan and remain in good standing. If a student drops below a 3.0 GPA in one semester, they will lose their scholarship for the next semester.
- State law requires that each student identify any relation to a current Board of Regent member. A student who is related to a current member of the governing board of that institution is prohibited from receiving scholarships unless the scholarship is awarded exclusively based on academic merit or is an athletic scholarship. It is a Class B misdemeanor to file a false statement.

- Continuing and newly admitted students to the MPH Program may apply.
