The field of public health is a combination of many different fields that come together and compliment each other in order to solve the challenging health problems in the communities that we service. This is why the UK College of Public Health believes in providing many opportunities to give back in order to pay it forward to the next generation.

In order to support our mission of developing health champions that impact the Commonwealth of Kentucky and beyond, we are here to help you find the right fund(s) that will make the most impact.
