Where to Give

Through the generosity of alumni and friends, UIC SPH students benefit from many endowed awards, scholarships and fellowships. These funds recognize student academic achievement, provide travel stipends, support students from underrepresented communities, and support the upgrading of UIC SPH computers.



This discretionary fund provides resources for the highest priority needs at UIC SPH. Your gift may be used to help enhance endowments or scholarship awards. It may also help expand student resources, such as travel funds or study facilities.


Alumni and friends have the option to direct part or all of their gifts to the academic divisions and programs. These discretionary funds allow individual programs to increase their student support, provide funds for research and professional development, and develop the many leadership programs for students and community partners.

  • Community Health Sciences Division Fund
  • Health Policy and Administration Division Fund
  • Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Division Fund
  • Epidemiology and Biostatistics Division Fund
