Scholarships in Public Health

The University of Newcastle and several organisations fund public health scholarships for commencing and continuing students in postgraduate coursework and in research higher degrees to support education and training in this field of study.

Scholarships are generally highly sought after and therefore extremely competitive. Prospective students should not rely on receiving funding to support their study. All scholarships are subject to funding. This information may be subject to change.
