LSU School of Public Health receives HRSA Funds

The LSU School of Public Health has received some exciting news – we have been awarded HRSA funding for scholarships for our MPH and BSPH students!

We were notified of our successful application for a Public Health Scholarship Program which we call “Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center-New Orleans Scholarships for Public Health Education, outReach, and Equity (LSU SPHERE)”. The award is for $1,165,911 over three years.  You may have heard the Chancellor mention this during his updates last week.  This funding is over 90% scholarships, the only other cost associated is marketing and outreach.  We are one of 29 awardees under this new program.

The program will launch this spring.
