Scholarships and Fellowships

With the ever-increasing rise in data and constant development of technology comes a growth in possibilities—for better treatments, faster response times, safer procedures, and countless other improvements. As the only academic program of biomedical informatics in Texas and the only such free-standing school in the nation, we are well-positioned to train tomorrow’s data scientists to turn these possibilities into realities.

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds ranging from computer science to cognitive science to health care professions such as medicine, nursing, and public health. The transdisciplinary nature of our school positions our faculty and students to make groundbreaking advancements and discoveries. Nevertheless, our diverse learners are linked by a vital commonality—they understand the importance of data in improving health care.

We offer a wide range of graduate certificate programs, dual degree programs, master’s programs, and doctoral programs. We recently launched our first-of-its-kind Doctorate in Health Informatics program, which allows executive-level professionals to get a terminal, applied degree in the field of health informatics so they can turn research into application to improve patient care.

In addition, we offer students real-world opportunities to join faculty in collaborating with health care organizations in the Texas Medical Center and beyond to address the world’s most pressing health challenges.

Scholarships and fellowships provide the School of Biomedical Informatics with the means to attract the brightest minds in data science, many of whom may not be able to nurture their talent without financial assistance.

Your support of Many Faces. One Mission. can create a ripple effect by providing opportunities for tomorrow’s data science and artificial intelligence experts who will go on to revolutionize the future of health care for our friends and families. We build healthier communities when we commit to the people who will serve them.

  • I believe my degree will help me utilize my information technology background to deliver solutions that improve patient care. I would like to work toward creating solutions that will make electronic health records easier to use. My scholarship will help me commit all my efforts to learn as much as possible during this process so I can deliver solutions that will benefit many patients in the future.
