The DeLamar Society

The Power of Scholarship Support

Scholarship support is critical to  the Mailman School’s ability to attract and retain the most promising public health students without regard for their financial circumstances  Donors providing scholarship aid allow students to concentrate on their coursework without worrying about living expenses or the prospect of crushing student loans.

Because scholarship support is a critical need and a priority area of focus for the Mailman School of Public Health, we are pleased to celebrate donors contributing gifts of $500 or more annually to support student scholarships as members of the DeLamar Society. 

Donors can take satisfaction from knowing that 100% of their contributions will go directly to providing scholarship aid to a student, making an immediate and profound impact on the life of a future public health leader. In addition to the satisfaction that comes from knowing that their gifts provide significant opportunities to students, members of the DeLamar Society enjoy benefits including:

  • Invitations to hear from leaders in the field about cutting-edge research and recent developments at the School and in the field of Public Health 

  • Updates from school leadership on the School’s Public Health initiatives and strategic plans

  • Opportunities to meet scholarship recipients and hear their successes

Donors making gifts of $5,000 or more have the opportunity to name a seat in the alumni auditorium, and receive an invitation to purchase tickets to the bi-annual Mailman Dinner.
