Global Health Scholarships
The following scholarships are offered through the Center for Global Health for current students. If you are a current student enrolled in ColoradoSPH courses, contact us for details on the following global health scholarships.
Calvin L. Wilson Scholarship for Future Leaders in Global Health
At the Center for Global Health, we are committed to tackling these challenges by training future generations of global health professionals and physicians at home and abroad -- leaders who understand the complexities and can solve the problems facing our global environment. This mission would not be possible were it not for the model and leadership of Dr. Calvin L. Wilson who served as the center's initial director. After taking the helm, Dr. Wilson expanded the center’s ability to train physicians overseas; mentor students at home; and develop relationships in support of a shared global mission.
Robinson Durst Scholarship
The Center for Global Health coordinates the scholarship that was founded by Professor Emeritus William Robinson, MD, PhD and Denver sculptor/ceramicist Peter Durst. Since 1997, the scholarship has provided more than 50 health sciences graduate students from the University of Colorado and Colorado School of Public Health with an opportunity to enjoy a culturally diverse clinical or research experience. Philosophically, the scholarship committee and its founders strongly believe in the long-lasting, positive value of global health endeavors in broadening personal and academic perspectives.
Students for Global Health initiated the Rotary Scholarship in 2005 with financial backing from several Denver metropolitan area Rotary clubs. All graduate students in the health professions are eligible for the award, provided their proposed projects fit with the cores values of rotary, including fellowship, service, and ethical conduct. The center administers the scholarship in close collaboration with Rotary leadership.
