The Impact of Your Gift

This fund was established to increase student support, provide travel funds for students, staff and faculty, and help further develop our personal leadership programs for students and community partners.

Our faculty and staff are committed to ensuring our students receive the highest quality education, which is why 100% of them made donations to start the fund!

As a result of this fund, we are able to offer master’s level students who are enrolled in the MCH program or the MCH Epidemiology program an opportunity to apply for the Maternal and Child Health Student Research Award. One award is given out annually and presented to the candidate at a UIC-SPH Awards ceremony during National Public Health week in April.

We ask that you consider contributing to the Maternal and Child Health Program Fund. Your donation will have a direct impact on our ability to enhance the education we provide to our students and the technical assistance and consultation we can provide to members of the maternal and child health community.

Participating is easy! You can make your gift online.
