A limited number of scholarships are available for selected students from developing countries and countries in economic transition. These scholarships cover virtually all costs related to participation in the Program including tuition, living accommodations, basic living expenses in the form of a monthly stipend, medical insurance, social activities, administration costs, and some textbooks. Airfare to and from Israel is not included in the scholarship.
Scholarship support is not available for students from high-income countries. The cost of participation in the IMPH program for non-scholarship students is 100,000 New Israeli Shekels (NIS). All payments must be made in Israeli currency or foreign currency based on the official exchange rate on the day of payment. This sum covers tuition, administrative fees, social/cultural activities, and medical insurance. (Living accommodations are not included and cannot be guaranteed.)
There are external scholarship opportunities for students applying to the International Master of Public Health Program at the Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine who do not qualify for financial assistance through the school. One of these is the Rotary Global Grant, which is a match grant scheme between the applicant’s local Rotary District and the Rotary Foundation’s Global Fund.
