The COHPA Partnership Scholarship

In support of its mission to provide a high quality, relevant education that encourages lifelong learning as students grow in their healthcare and public service careers, Franklin University’s College of Health & Public Administration offers tuition scholarship benefits to employees of partner organizations.

As part of the college’s commitment to open pathways for professionals to obtain higher education and professional goals, the scholarship benefit is available for all programs within the College of Health & Public Administration.

To be eligible for a COHPA Education Partnership Scholarship, you must be employed by a partner institution. The scholarship will be applied as a percentage of tuition each term – upon registration – as long as you remain employed by a partner institution. The scholarship applies toward tuition only.
