Rosenstiel Opportunity Award

In an effort to support the University's diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, the Master of Professional Science program at the Rosenstiel School now offers 4 Rosenstiel Opportunity Scholarships. This scholarship provides high-achieving students from historically underserved or underrepresented populations to earn a master’s degree from the Rosenstiel School at no cost or significantly reduced tuition cost (student fees still apply). Each scholarship consists of 24 credits and allows recipients to earn an additional 6 credits (maximum) through the MPS program’s merit-based waiver. Completion of 30-credits total is required for a master’s degree at UM; therefore, scholarship recipients are eligible to complete the MPS program at no or significantly reduced tuition cost: scholarship + waiver (the latter if eligible).

Applications are due by March 15th to be considered for this academic year. Applications will be reviewed by faculty members within the RSMAS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee representing all of the school departments. The review criteria will emphasize the applicant’s potential contribution to create a diverse and inclusive RSMAS student body and the strength of the written essay. Award winners will be informed by April 15th.
