Preparing tomorrow’s public health leaders for a lifetime of service.
Students at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health (FSPH) strive to improve pressing public health issues affecting the world. They participate in research and study community and environmental health, biostatistics, epidemiology, and health policy and management. They also put their skills to work via service. Every year, Fielding students conduct more than 60,000 hours of meaningful fieldwork in communities from South Los Angeles to Asia.
But not all students have the funds to pay for this educational experience. In fact, ninety percent of students require aid. That’s where gifts to the Student Fellowship Fund come in.
“Lifting the financial burden enables students to explore opportunities they may otherwise not be able to consider,” notes Devin Saragosa-Harris, MPH ’16, who now works as a program manager focused on community health and youth education. “Being less burdened by student loans allowed me to accept a position with a community based organization with targeted programs for underserved populations.”
