Rural Health Scholarship

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) Department of Public Health seeks to recruit and train public health professionals who are dedicated to serving the rural areas of West Texas. In support of that goal, the Rural Health Scholarship rewards full-time students by providing a scholarship of $2000.00, ($1000 Fall / $1000 Spring) which may be renewed each year. Part-time students are also eligible to apply. If awarded, part-time students will receive $500 in the Fall and Spring.


NOTE: Recipients must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA or the award may be withdrawn. Students that receive a 3.0 or better in a future semester may reapply for the scholarship.
