The University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is a new university based in Rwanda that is focused on building the next generation of global health professionals into leaders and changemakers through the Master of Science in Global Health Delivery (MGHD) program. They are on a mission to radically change the way health care is delivered around the world.

UGHE’s MGHD program provides one-of-a-kind learning experiences fundamentally rooted in the principles of global health, One Health, epidemiology, global health policy, management, finance, and leadership, preparing students to tackle complex health care delivery challenges in communities that need it most. Their vision is a world where every individual—no matter who they are or where they live— can lead a healthy and productive life. UGHE is committed to alleviating the burden of tuition for students through equity affirmative financial aid policies including payment plans and scholarship opportunities.

Scholarship

All applicants will be considered for UGHE scholarships which are available to each incoming MGHD class. In addition to general scholarship support, UGHE has named scholarships for women and One Health leaders.
