Scholarships for Master of Health Administration students
Ken and Cindy Stella Scholarship
Each year a Stella Scholar is selected from applicants whose GPA is 3.5 or better. The award is named after program alumnus and former Indiana Hospital Association president, Ken Stella and his wife Cindy. The award is $10,000 per year for two years and is intended to support students who are pursuing their MHA full-time. Students are notified of their eligibility the spring after the student is admitted to the program and the scholarship is awarded the summer before the student begins classes. It is renewable for a second year as long as the student remains in good standing.
Eskenazi Health Scholars program
The Eskenazi Health Scholars program is open to students who are pursuing the MHA/MPH dual degree. The selection process occurs during the student’s first semester and the program begins in January (second semester of the student’s coursework). The program awards each student $20,000 for the calendar year (spring semester, summer, fall semester).
The award is intended to help defray the cost of tuition and to provide a stipend for the student. In exchange for the stipend, the student agrees to work for Eskenazi Health 10 hours per week during spring and fall semesters and 40 hours per week during the summer. Students in good standing may continue in the program for their second year of study.
Paul Lang Scholarships
Each year up to three students may be awarded the Paul Lang Scholarship ($2,000 each). These awards are designed to encourage students with unique experiences or perspectives to enroll in the FSPH MHA program. The scholarship offer is made at the time the applicant is admitted to the program.
