HOW TO APPLY (includes tuition & financial aid information)


The Sheila Gorman Scholarship is a need-based, partial scholarship awarded to one incoming student in the EXEC Program. It is funded by the family, friends, students, and colleagues of retired faculty member Sheila Gorman, PhD, in honor of her career at the Mailman School of Public Health. 

No separate application is needed, but the student must complete the regular application for financial aid (FAFSA & the Columbia University application for financial aid). 

Note that EXEC students are eligible for other scholarships offered through the Mailman School of Public Health.
