The C. Sylvia and Eddie C. Brown Community Health Scholarship Program trains future public health leaders who are committed to eliminating health disparities in Baltimore.

Many chronic diseases and health conditions are overrepresented in minority communities. Brown Scholars are passionate public health students interested in working to improve the health and quality of life of underserved, vulnerable and low-income populations here in Baltimore and in other urban centers.

The program provides tuition, a stipend, research support and faculty mentorship to select doctoral candidates enrolled at the Bloomberg School.

Message from C. Sylvia and Eddie C. Brown
C. Sylvia and Eddie C. Brown

“Our major goal is to improve the health outcomes of low-income families in Baltimore,” say Sylvia and Eddie.

The Browns, who have been active philanthropists in Baltimore for many years, want the scholars to use their academic knowledge and research in the community for an extended time and make a significant, transformative impact.
