Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, UTHealth School of Public Health in Brownsville continues to connect underserved communities in the Rio Grande Valley to exceptional programs to improve health and innovative research studies. Each day, students help make a difference by improving lives locally and supporting critical health initiatives with a global reach.
For many students, the Rio Grande Valley is home. They grew up here and will put their degrees to use throughout the region, addressing the unique health issues facing local communities. But many students struggle to afford the cost of higher education, so they have to rely on loans and part-time jobs, which can impact their ability to focus on becoming tomorrow’s public health leaders.
Scholarships help provide students with the financial security and freedom to concentrate on their education. Right now, there are very few campus-specific scholarships available to students in Brownsville—but we are doing more to help students succeed thanks to the support of friends like you.
To ensure our students have the resources they need to achieve their dreams, the Brownsville campus is establishing an endowed scholarship in celebration of our 20th anniversary. This endowment will serve as a permanent source of scholarship funding, ensuring generations of students can launch careers in public health.
Your generosity to this scholarship will make a big difference for communities across the Rio Grande Valley. Your support will help give our students the foundation to build healthier futures for our families, friends, and neighbors.
