Meharry SACS Scholarships

We recognize that graduate school is a significant investment in your personal and professional development. As an HBCU, we are also dedicated to increasing diversity in the data science industry.

Students admitted to attend the M.S. Data Science, or the M.S. or Ph.D. Biomedical Data are eligible for scholarships of up to 50 percent of tuition. Those awards will be applied toward the first year of enrollment and, depending on academic performance and funding, may be awarded again. The admission application will also serve as the scholarship application.
