In an effort to support the University's diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, the Master of Professional Science program at the Rosenstiel School offers a limited number of Rosenstiel Opportunity Awards. All interested prospective MPS students who submit their MPS application by March 1 will be invited to apply for the Rosenstiel Opportunity Award. This award is intended to benefit historically underserved or underrepresented populations. This award is highly competitive.

Each award 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, Rosenstiel Opportunity Award recipients are eligible to complete the MPS program at no or significantly reduced tuition cost: Rosenstiel Opportunity Award + merit-based waiver (if eligible).

You must have already submitted an MPS application for admission by March 1 to be eligible to apply for the Rosenstiel Opportunity Award. Opportunity Award applications are due by March 15 to be considered for the upcoming academic year. Applications will be reviewed by the Rosenstiel School Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. The review criteria will emphasize the applicant’s potential contribution and benefit to the diversity, equity, and inclusion of the Rosenstiel School scientific community.
