Honoring the Memory of Henriatta Selle Tiri
The Henriatta Selle Tiri Scholarship Program will provide ten annual full scholarships to students enrolled in the University of Maryland Graduate School’s online MS in Global Health or the MS in Health Sciences program who are pursuing concentrations in Research Implementation and Dissemination Sciences; Research Administration; Research Ethics; Science Communication; Integrative Health and Wellness; or Global Health Systems. Henriatta was about to graduate from the MS in Health Sciences with a concentration in Research Implementation and Dissemination Sciences this May, and her degree will be posthumously awarded.
In her spare time, Henriatta loved listening to gospel music and sermons and was a devoted member of the Church of Christ in Nigeria; she had been recently appointed secretary of the building committee. She is survived by her husband, Kamji Gabriel; daughters Tehila, (7) and Nima (2); her parents; and four siblings.
International affiliates of UMB who live outside the United States applying to the M.S. in Health Science (MSHS) or M.S. in Global Health are eligible to apply for the full-tuition scholarship. Scholarship recipients are selected from the incoming class of admitted students and are notified as scholarship selections are made. The program is for Fall entry only.
Number, amount, and duration of scholarship:
Each academic year, the Graduate School will award ten full-tuition scholarships to incoming students. Students awarded the scholarship in the first year will automatically be awarded the scholarship in the second year of study as long as they maintain a 3.0 grade point average. Students cannot receive scholarship funds after the end of their second academic year in the program even if the degree has not been completed yet for any reason. To complete the degree in two years, students must also be enrolled for a minimum number of credits (6 or 7) each semester to complete the degree in two years.
