Who is Eligible: U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents may qualify for partial funding from a need-based Grant.

How to Apply: Applicants should submit the FAFSA as soon as possible once it's available October 1. The final deadline to apply for this grant is March 1st.

Notification: If you’ve completed your FAFSA and added Yale’s school code (001426) you will receive emailed notification of Grant eligibility shortly after you are admitted. Returning students will receive notification before the fall term bill.

All students are encouraged to seek funding sources from their employer, alma mater, organizations with which they are affiliated, and via web site searches. See the Grants and Scholarships page for more information on searching for non-Yale resources. Students who receive a full tuition scholarship are not eligible for Scholarships or Grants from YSPH. Students must inform the Financial Aid Office of any outside support, as awards may need to be revised.

In addition to consideration for YSPH financial resources, all students are encouraged to seek outside scholarships from their employer, alma mater, organizations with which they are affiliated, and via web site searches.

While there is no one comprehensive place to find resources for Public Health students, the list below is a good place to start.

Before you begin researching outside resources, be sure to familiarize yourself with the basics of scholarship scams to ensure you’re applying through trustworthy organizations that will keep your information safe.

Using the Yale Payment Plan, all students may divide all or part of the year’s bill into 10 monthly payments starting June 1. Semester plans are also available; the cost is $100 per contract.

Working on Campus

In addition to an on-campus hourly wage of at least $12.50 an hour, student employment offers flexible part-time positions designed to allow students to balance their studies and their job.  YSPH tuition remission is a not a benefit of part time (or full time) employment at Yale, but you may gain valuable work experience and professional references! Most students work 10-12 hours a week during the school year.

  • Campus Jobs
  • Teaching Fellowships
  • Research Assistant Jobs
    • There are research projects that are in need of a research assistant. We suggest you begin your search for a research assistant position by asking your faculty advisor for suggestions. There are also many positions posted on the Student Employment website.


U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents may request federal loans once your FAFSA are complete. You will be notified of your loan eligibility, and asked to specify the amount and type of loans you’re requesting for the year.
All students may be eligible for private loans but some students may require a credit-worthy US cosigner to obtain a private loan. You may access a historical list of lenders through the ELM network.

A student loan is a tool you may use to invest in your education, much like you might use a mortgage to invest in the purchase of a home. With a YSPH degree, we hope you’ll feel confident in your ability to repay it! If you use a student loan to fund all or part of your education here at YSPH we want to we want to make sure you know what to expect when it’s time to pay it back.

To estimate your monthly payment after your graduate you may use the Federal Student Aid Repayment Estimator. Tips for using this tool:

  • If you log in using your FSA ID you will be automatically linked to any previous federal loan records from the National Student Loan Data System.
  • YSPH students are eligible for Direct Unsubsidized Loans for graduate students of $33,000 per year and the Direct PLUS Loan for graduate students if additional loans required above that amount.
  • Interest rates change each year. To estimate interest rates for loans you may borrow at YSPH, refer to the most recent interest rates found on the Federal Student Aid website.
  • You may use estimated salary information to see the full range of payment options that may be available. To learn more about the salaries of YSPH graduates, please visit our Career Management Center website.
  • You may use the Federal Student Aid Repayment Estimator to estimate private loan payments, but the most accurate information about your private loan repayment plan will come from your lender.
We’d be happy to sit down and make an individual funding plan once you receive notification of your financial aid eligibility. To schedule an appointment, email
