Global Fellows Fund
Your support of the Global Fellows Fund enables students to study overseas and gain international experience.
Dean's Discretionary Fund
The Dean’s Discretionary Fund provides the dean with the flexibility to address students’ most pressing needs. It has enabled students to present posters at national conferences and pursue individual research projects, provided additional stipends for study abroad, offered supplemental financial aid, and funded our groundbreaking comprehensive palliative and end of life care programs.
