Murray and Pearl Rosenberg Memorial Award Application

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, a physician and professor of genetics and cell biology from 1963 - 93 and an advocate for human rights.

The award provides financial assistance to students who conduct research or provide humanitarian service in socially or economically depressed areas. These student experiences may occur in the United States or abroad.  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.

Awards are typically 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 November 15, 2013 for opportunities taking place from December 1, 2013 - March 31, 2014. The application can be found on the CBS Student Services website at http://www.cbs.umn.edu/students/rosenberg.

Questions about the application or the award can be directed to Vanessa Walton, Associate Program Director in the Learning Abroad Center, at vwalton@umn.edu.
