- Have a demonstrated financial need;
- Have a minimum 3.2 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) or other significant accomplishment;
- Participate in at least one professional student organization.
Applications should be submitted to the Department of Environmental Health Scholarship Committee by 15 February of each year.
Scholarships shall be awarded by the College of Public Health Student Scholarship Awards Committee.
