Eskenazi Health Scholars

Eskenazi Health Scholars program

The Eskenazi Health Scholars program offers dual degree MHA/MPH students a generous scholarship of approximately $20,000 (including tuition and a stipend) and the unique opportunity for hands-on training in the health system.

Congratulations to our 2024 Eskenazi Health Scholars:

  • SaBrea Cowan, MHA/MPH
  • Jilian Hoversland, MHA/MPH
  • Ramandip Kaur, MHA/MPH
  • Rhea Khatra, MHA/MPH
  • Leslee Milby, MHA
  • Xochitl Rivera-Cordova (MHA 4+1 Accelerated)

MHA/MPH joint degree students typically apply to be an Eskenazi Health Scholar in October of their first year in the master's program. Scholars are selected in November with notification in December. New scholars then initiate the program in January. Second-year MHA/MPH students and students considering the MHA/MPH dual degree are also welcome to apply.

Eskenazi Health Scholars are mentored by a senior administrator in organizational responsibilities, career development, and professional networking. Each scholar will also complete a major project and a full summer internship working on a real-world challenge that Eskenazi Health is facing.

Eskenazi Health is assisting the Fairbanks School of Public Health in providing the most comprehensive, relevant, and transformative MHA/MPH dual degree training in the United States.

I was able to collaborate with upper management and C-Suite level Eskenazi Health leaders. My supervisor constantly supported me and provided me the freedom of leading numerous projects that enhanced my leadership skills in healthcare.
