A Century of Saving Lives

Centennial Scholars

The Centennial is an opportunity to recognize the School’s generous supporters and emphasize Dean Michael J. Klag’s top fundraising priority—increasing student scholarship support.


We educate, mentor and inspire our students to do great things. And they have—for nearly a century.

Yet for students who seek the best public health education to make the greatest impact in this world, lack of financial resources is the most significant barrier they face.

To recruit and retain the world’s most promising students, the School aims to increase endowed scholarships to secure long-term support, while increasing aid for immediate impact.

In honor of our Centennial, the Centennial Scholars Program seeks to raise $1 million from 100 donors to recruit the world’s most promising students to each of the School’s ten departments and the MPH program.

The funds will benefit 10 to 20 students each year for the next 5 to 10 years, creating opportunities for deserving students to apply the best public health education to solve real-world problems.

There is no better place than the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to invest in research, education and training programs that save lives by the millions.

The deadline for gifts and pledges in support of the Centennial Scholars Fund is December 31, 2017.
