Giving Back Higher education budgets are shrinking for a variety of reasons. Programs simply cannot rely totally on federal, state and local government for student scholarships. You can make a financial contribution to the MPH scholarship fund by clicking below.

Your UT Email
Did you know that your UT email follows you after graduation?  That's right--you are able to access and use your email even after you graduate as long as you login every six months and keep your password up-to-date.  If you let the password expire and do not reset it, you will no longer have access to the mailbox.
