Robinson Durst Scholarship

The Center for Global Health coordinates the scholarship that was founded by Professor Emeritus William Robinson, MD, Ph.D. and Denver sculptor/ceramicist Peter Durst.  Since 1997, the scholarship has provided more than 50 health sciences graduate students from the University of Colorado Denver and University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus with an opportunity to enjoy a culturally diverse clinical or research experience.
