Scholarship and Funding Information

Program funding is available at the Ph.D. level.  Most M.S. students will fund the majority of their Medical Physics graduate education with student loans, however, there are some scholarship opportunities available. 

Internal scholarship opportunities

To be considered for funding from the Medical Physics Graduate Program, your full application materials must be received by the application deadline. All students offered admission are considered for the following OHSU scholarship opportunities:

  • OHSU President's Fund:  To ensure that OHSU graduate students have the opportunity to help address the healthcare needs of Oregon, the region, and the US, the OHSU President’s Fund will provide funds to qualified students from diverse backgrounds to become health professionals. Funds are provided to internally selected students and will cover full tuition and required fees charged to the student’s account for the length of the standard MP program.
  • OHSU Provost Excellence Scholarships: OHSU has established a new Provost Excellence Scholarship to help increase the number of students who graduate from a number of our health professions programs as well as increase the diversity of our overall student body to 30% by the year 2030. Priority applications will be considered for Provost Excellence Scholarship funding and funding is intended to increase student diversity. To be eligible, students must meet two or more of the Provost Excellence Scholarship criteria. These criteria are: racial or ethnic minority underrepresented in the healthcare professions in Oregon; first-generation college student; history of receiving social services support; history of participating or receiving educational support or accommodations; from a rural or frontier environment. This information is collected from applicants during the admission application process.
