Support accessible education through a school scholarship fund
The Colorado School of Public Health is proud to provide high quality, accessible education, research and practice-based experiences for all of students. Student scholarships are one way to ensure that the school can continue to provide these experiences, as well as recruit and retain a diverse and talented student body. As the school prepares for the upcoming fall semester, help ensure that public health graduate education remains an affordable and accessible opportunity for all of our students by making a gift to one of our current student scholarship programs.
Judith Albino Diversity Scholarship: Created in honor of University of Colorado President Emerita and former Colorado School of Public Health Interim Dean Judith Albino, the Albino Diversity Scholarship is provided to health professional students with a preference for students from federally recognized Indian tribes.
Hamman-Hoffman Scholarship in Epidemiology: Created in honor of Founding Dean Emeritus Richard F. Hamman, the scholarship fund was endowed through the generous contributions of Richard Hoffman, MD, MPH and the Caring for Colorado Foundation. The scholarship invests in the education and preparation of future epidemiologists by supporting students currently enrolled in a Colorado School of Public Health epidemiology program.
Calvin L. Wilson Scholarship for Future Leaders in Global Health: Named in honor of former Center for Global Health Director Calvin L. Wilson, M.D., this fund provides students with financial support, including travel costs associated with a student global health project.
John R. Moran Jr. Scholarship Fund: Established by the Colorado Trust in honor of former Trust President/CEO John R. Moran Jr., this endowed scholarship fund supports students across the Colorado School of Public Health community. Currently the largest of the school’s endowed scholarships, the Moran fund provides the greatest number of annual scholarship awards and is a good option for alumni and faculty directed annual gifts.
To make a gift toward one of these scholarship funds, please visit the University of Colorado Foundation at http://www.cufund.org. Contributing to a scholarship fund online is an easy and quick way to make an difference in the educational opportunities for current and future students of public health.
