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

  • Eugene Gorzynski Travel Award
    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.
  • Murray W. Stinson Award for Excellence in Dissertation Research
    The Stinson award recognizes outstanding dissertation research in microbiology and immunology.
  • Ernest Witebsky Award
    The Witebsky award is given to the PhD student with the best academic performance of their class in microbiology and immunology coursework.
  • Marek B. Zaleski Award
    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.
