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.  If you have questions about any of these funds, or wish to create an endowed fund, please contact the Office of Advancement at (312) 355-3027 or SPHAdvancement@uic.edu.
