School of Public Health and Health Professions Student Diversity Fund

Hayes Hall.

This fund helps students — and the school — by providing support for a diverse student body.

The School of Public Health and Health Professions Student Diversity Fund offers critical financial support for students who will contribute to the diversity of the student body at the school.

Students can use the funds for a variety of expenses, including (but not limited to) tuition, stipends, conference attendance, books and computers.

The fund is available to undergraduate and graduate students throughout the School of Public Health and Health Professions, in any department. Preference should be given to students from underrepresented populations, with priority given to applicants facing financial barriers.
