In line with our core mission, FAES is committed to providing affordable continuing education courses that remain accessible to working professionals and researchers who are interested in furthering their education and career goals and meet the applicable prerequisites for the course.

FAES offers two partial scholarship programs, offering $50 tuition discount per credit, to eligible students in need of financial assistance and who can make a short but compelling justification as to how the respective FAES course would help them in their career or professional development. Both types of scholarship require that the recipient take the course for credit and complete the course satisfactorily, which is determined as “C”, or above, or “Pass,” when the course is graded on a Pass/Fail basis.

The Gerald D. Aurbach Memorial Scholarship Fund is open to guest researchers, while the FAES Student Scholarship Fund provides partial scholarship to self-funded postbac/graduate students, postdoctoral fellows as well non-NIH government or non-profit employees with limited income working in research, practice or education of health sciences.

Deadline for scholarship applications: August 29, 2014 (Fall 2014) and January 16, 2015 (Spring 2015)

FAES expects to offer 20 scholarships in the fall semester, and 15 scholarships for the spring semester.

FAES will only consider applications for one course per semester. Expenses for textbooks are not covered. 

Review Criteria (merit and need based):
  • Compelling justification for how the FAES Graduate School fits in with the career stage and overall career plan of applicant; evidence and commitment to continued professional development; explanation of how this learning experience builds on applicant’s current professional knowledge and/or skills.

  • Evidence and need for financial aid.

  • Professional and academic achievements and standing to date.

Applications for scholarships are considered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, handicap, national or ethnic origin, disability or veteran status.
