Our nation's future depends on maintaining our technological leadership. We hope you will support the Department of Biomedical Informatics, and help us achieve our goals for continued growth. Every investment we receive, every scholarship, every grant contributes to our effectiveness in providing a transformative educational experience for our students. Specifically we are asking you to consider:
First Year Scholarships
With an increased number of students comes the challenge of providing adequate scholarship support. Every year, the department receives applications from outstanding individuals with stellar qualifications to be a student of biomedical informatics. To draw the top students we need your help with providing first year scholarships.
An important goal for attracting top faculty to the Department of Biomedical Informatics is to provide endowed chairs and professorships. Named investments at this level provide a transformational legacy in the department. Endowments for chairs and professorships may be accomplished through a variety of estate planning vehicles that can provide significant tax benefits for the donor.
Your gift to the Department's General Gift Fund provides essential resources that can be used to fund urgent needs within the Department.
