Helping students achieve equitable research opportunities starts with you!

In 2019, the 100th student graduated from the Masters in Conservation Medicine Program. To celebrate this milestone we the Class of 2019, are establishing an MCM Student Externship & Research Equity Fund.

This scholarship will be used to grant future students funds to further their MCM experience specifically supporting externship opportunities with a priority on conducting independent research. 

A graduate program is an expensive undertaking. Funds from this scholarship will be awarded to help a student overcome barriers that may stand between themselves and an experience that could shape their future career - from covering housing for an externship, paying for laboratory sample analysis, covering supply costs for independent research projects, or paying for travel expenses for an internship abroad, this scholarship will be used to open doors for a student who otherwise might not be able due to financial limitations. 

Ultimately, the focus of this scholarship is to make opportunities more accessible to currently enrolled MCM students. If each of the current ~100 alumni donated just $10, this would generate to $1,000 to be put towards making experiences in the environmental field more equitable and attainable. Any amount donated will make a difference. 

We are hoping to raise $1000 by February 28th, 2021. We hope you will help us reach this goal.

You can give a future MCM student an opportunity that could transform their future. Thank you!
