PFRH Centennial Scholarship
With gratitude to the faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health, we are pleased to announce the creation of the PFRH Centennial Endowed Scholarship. Our donors stepped up in a big way and gave over $108,000 in time to secure the $100,000 in matching funds from the School. Congratulations to all and thank you for your commitment to public health education and research.
The Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health announces an exciting opportunity to support our school, our department and our students, and double our investment through a matching donation. In honor of the School's Centennial, department faculty will create an endowed scholarship for a student with exceptional leadership potential (description of the scholarship). The scholarship statement, developed by a faculty committee, reads as follows:
In honor of the Bloomberg School of Public Health’s 100th anniversary, the faculty of the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health (PFRH) has established this endowed student scholarship. The scholarship is intended for an advanced masters or doctoral student who on the basis of scholarship and community service has distinguished her or himself as an individual of exceptional leadership and promise in one of the focal areas of PFRH.
There are multiple ways you can support this fund.
- You can contribute directly by check or credit card.
- You can use the payroll deduction form as well.
- You can also dedicate a portion of the funds in your discretionary account to this fund or make a multi-year pledge.
Each year, we turn away many deserving applicants who are unable to afford the School's tuition. This scholarship will make it possible for an exceptional student with great promise to attend the School.
All new donations made on or before June 30 will allow us to reach our target of $100,000 that will be matched by the Bloomberg School resulting in a scholarship fund of $200,000. Transfers do not count towards the match.
Please join us and make your gift, pledge or discretionary account allocation. You are able to make a secure online donation. In the "designate my gift support" area, please select "others". In the text box that will open, please enter PFRH Centennial Scholarship.
Donors will be recognized on a plaque in the department hallway.
