Applications are now being accepted for the Murray and Pearl Rosenberg Memorial Award. This award was established by Pearl Rosenberg, psychologist and former assistant dean of the University of Minnesota Medical School, in honor of her husband Murray Rosenberg, physician and professor of genetics and cell biology from 1963 - 93 and an advocate for human rights. The award assists students who conduct research or provide humanitarian service in socially or economically depressed parts of the world or the United States.
Preference will be given to projects that take the student to non-English-speaking countries, especially developing nations, and to projects that have a direct impact on human health.
Typical awards will be in the $300-$800 range and are issued upon the completion of the experience. Awards are given for travel expenses only.
The application deadline is Monday, April 1, 2013 at 11:59pm. The application, instructions, and award criteria can be found on the CBS Student Services website at http://www.cbs.umn.edu/students/rosenberg
