2 min read

The Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) recently announced a new scholarship opportunity for students and scholars from Southeast and East-Central Europe. The annual tuition scholarship is for qualified students to enroll in a unique master’s level program in environmental health in Nicosia, Cyprus. The Postgraduate Program in Environmental Health is offered through the Cyprus International Institute. Established in June 2004 as a result of a unique partnership between Harvard and the Government of Cyprus, the institute trains leaders in environmental and public health in Cyprus and the region.

The program takes place over a 12-month period (September through August) encompassing more than 50 course credits. Its primary mission is to recruit outstanding students from the region in environmental health and to provide them with the skills necessary to assume leadership positions in research, government, and the private sector.

Candidates from various disciplines, including medicine, engineering, public health, and the physical and biological sciences, are encouraged to apply. The program trains students to assume key academic and research positions in environmental health throughout the region. The application deadline is March 1.
