You can still make a gift to the area of WVU that means the most to you!
School of Public Health

Your support is critical to help the WVU School of Public Health go above and go beyond. By investing in our students, you’re investing in the future of public health. Your support is the essential next step as we navigate our way out of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has exposed and, in many instances, exacerbated pressing public health issues. The future of public health depends on the loyal, caring members of the Mountaineer family, like you, to enable the School to build a stronger public health workforce for tomorrow. 

Your gifts empower the School of Public Health to create incredible opportunities, including:

  • Graduate Scholarships (Fund #2P044) - Supports students in the Master of Public Health and Master of Health Administration programs
  • Public Health Emerging Leader Fund/Undergraduate Scholarships (Fund #2S582) - Supports undergraduate students
  • Experiential Learning Opportunities Fund (Fund #2V543) - Supports students’ hands-on learning activities, particularly those working in rural areas of West Virginia 
  • Dean's Fund for Excellence in Public Health (Fund #2W605)  - Supports the most pressing needs of the School

When you make a gift—no matter the size—you help make an immediate impact for the School of Public Health. Your spirited generosity and devotion to advancing our mission are greatly appreciated.
