Applied Practice Experience Funding

Field Practice, in the Office of Careers and Practice (OCP), administers a small stipends program. The program provides students who complete their initial requirements (e.g. submission of Scope of Work by specific date, departmental approvals) on time with a small sum to partially support their expenses during the Applied Practice Experience (APEx). Students are responsible for covering the full cost of their APEx and personal expenses. Some agencies offer paid APEx opportunities. For Mailman students, a paid practicum is acceptable but not required.  

Field Practice provides information on additional sources of funding.

Contact Field Practice at msph-ofp@cumc.columbia.eduor your departmental academic coordinator for more information on additional funding options.
