Improving health and reducing inequities worldwide


Funding Opportunities

Masters of Science in Global Health Sciences

The Masters of Science in Global Health Sciences is a self-supporting program and thus UCSF Graduate Division scholarship support is not available. Students may apply for federal financial aid (such as Stafford loans), from the UCSF Financial Aid Office and may be eligible for work-study.

There is limited funding for need-based scholarships (awards of $5,000 or less) through Global Health Sciences. To be eligible, you need to complete the financial aid application including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Determination for these scholarships will be made in late August of the matriculating year. We also encourage students to seek scholarship money on their own.

Pathway to Discovery in Global Health

A variety of fellowship and funding opportunities are available for Pathway to Discovery in Global Health students. Please visit the Office of International Programs or Central Pathway Funding Agency websites for more information.

Global Health Clinical Scholars Program (GHCSP)

Funding for Global Health Clinical Scholar projects and travel is available on a competitive basis from the Mt. Zion Health Fund. Examples of previously funded projects include the analysis of compliance to HIV medication regimens related to distance from health clinics in Uganda, and the development of TB prophylaxis protocols in HIV infected children in Kenya.
