Rosenberg Application Open

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.

Submissions for opportunities taking place during winter break or spring semester 2016 are due by 11:59 p.m. on October 26, 2015. Late submissions will not be accepted. All submissions are final.

If you have any questions, please contact Kate Nelson, Program Associate for the College of Biological Sciences, at krnelson@umn.edu. Admission decision will be announced 3-4 weeks after the submission deadline.
