Scholarship support is critical for the Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health to attract and retain the most talented students. Your gifts will help students focus on their scholarly pursuits, engage in the communities they serve, and connect to the public health workforce. Scholarship funds help us maintain our excellent standing and our competitiveness in recruiting the brightest and most dedicated students.
Scholarship gifts can be utilized in the current year they are given or, can be added to the established scholarship endowment fund that will pay scholarships for years to come. Scholarships can be named after individuals, foundations and corporations.
Innovative projects, community service programs, student internships, student and faculty travel to conferences and lecture series are priorities that are regularly in need of funding. Private support for these initiatives is important in the current climate as public sources of funding have decreased. These are unrestricted funds that the Dean allocates to the areas of most need.
These funds are needed to recruit faculty of high distinction and to retain valuable faculty members so the College can continue responding to Arizona's needs for public health teaching and research. The positions provide strong academic visibility and awareness, which in turn help attract faculty and students.
For more information about specific giving tools, levels of endowment, naming opportunities or areas of research in need of support, please call the Development Office at (520) 626-2948.
