Support Our Department

We manage several endowments that support stipends, tuition and professional development experiences for students. These funds are essential to advancing our mission of academic excellence — and to continuing the strong reputation of our department. We invite new gifts to them from alumni and friends.

Our Student-Focused Endowment Funds

The Gorzynski Travel Award supports a PhD or MD/PhD student who is traveling to a national or international meeting to present a research paper or poster.
The Stinson award recognizes outstanding dissertation research in microbiology and immunology.
The Witebsky award is given to the PhD student with the best academic performance of their class in microbiology and immunology coursework.
This award is given to a second-year medical student who demonstrates high standards of academic achievement and outstanding service to the community and exemplifies the spirit of a Renaissance man or woman.
