Financial Aid

Tulane University seeks to offer educational opportunities to qualified students regardless of their ability to meet expenses. Financial aid makes it possible for students who cannot meet full costs --- tuition, fees, room and board, books, and personal expenses --- to attend school. Aid is awarded on the basis of need, the university's cost of attendance, budget, books, and personal need, the university's cost of attendance budget, and the availability of funds. Aid packages may include one or more of the following types of assistance: gift aid (grants and scholarships), loans, and employment. Since most of these programs are federally funded, applicants must meet federal eligibility criteria such as United States citizenship or permanent resident status, at least a half-time academic load (five credits per semester), and good academic standing.

Need is determined by federal methodology, using information provided by each applicant through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Most applicants for need-based assistance will be eligible to borrow funds through the federal subsidized Stafford loan program. Remaining need can usually be met through some combination of scholarships, traineeships, Federal Perkins Loans, federal unsubsidized Stafford loans, federal work-study employment, and private alternative programs (such as Graduate Access or GradEXCEL loans). Students applying for need-based assistance via the FAFSA will automatically be considered for all federal financial aid programs at Tulane. Consideration for financial aid requires that a student has been offered admission and has completed the financial aid application process.


Grants and Traineeships

The U.S. Public Health Service offers grants and traineeships as supplemental assistance to qualified students. The Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students program provides grants to aid the educational opportunities for students from socially and/or economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The Minority Health International Research Training Program (MHIRT) provides short-term research training opportunities for minority students interested in a career in international health research. For more information, visit Students who receive Disadvantaged Student Grants are required to take part in community service projects and school-sponsored mentor activities, particularly concerning minority health issues. Eligibility for the aforementioned program requires full disclosure of parental information by the applicant.

Financial Aid for International Students

Unfortunately, Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine currently has no federal financial aid, assistantships, scholarships, or tuition waivers for international students. However, we recommend that international students visit, which may introduce students to sponsoring agencies, scholarship programs, or other private loan programs.

International students may rely on many offices and programs at Tulane University. More than 15 multicultural organizations including the Asian American Students United, Consortium of Black Student Organizations, Latin American Student Association, Middle East Student Organization, Tulane African Student Organization, and other groups. The Center for International Students and Scholars also offers programs and services related to immigration, housing, counseling, advising, and travel abroad. Call (504) 865-5208.
