The purpose of the Walter A. Remak Scholarship is to benefit undergraduate and/or graduate students in the School of Public Health who plan to pursue public health work in South Africa, regardless of the student’s country of origin. The funds can be applied toward a variety of expenses, including but not limited to: tuition, travel, research-related expenses, practicum/internship-related expenses, housing, food, textbooks and lab fees. The expenses must be related, implicitly or explicitly, to the student’s work in South Africa.



The UW School of Public Health is pleased to announce the availability of the Patrick-Beresford Fellowship in Social Epidemiology. The intent of this award is to support graduate students from any department in the School of Public Health who are engaged in the study of social epidemiology.



The School of Public Health is able to provide support to one PhD student and one Masters student currently enrolled in the School of Public Health who has completed at least one full academic year (3 quarters) in their graduate program at the time of award disbursement (Autumn 2018). Funds can be used to support tuition, books, fees, and other educational expenses.




Information regarding these funding opportunities may also be found here: In addition, these funding opportunities will also be included in the weekly SPH Insider.
