Giving to the School of Health Professions
Make an Enduring Investment in a Healthier Tomorrow
Do you want to change the world today — and for years to come? Endowments are a meaningful way your generosity can improve the health of the public for generations.
Regular distributions from your endowment will provide a reliable, ongoing source of financial support that funds the work you care about most, forever.
Currently, approximately 25% of our students receive scholarships. Our goal is to double that number, building our base of endowments to award scholarships to half our students.
By creating new scholarship endowments, UTMB friends and alumni can make a powerful investment in the future of health care careers.

work, and more.
Chairs and professorships help attract and retain top faculty — and give them the resources they need to advance the way we understand, prevent, diagnose, and provide health care. These named gifts can be a special tribute to a faculty member or
someone else who is important to you.
The School of Health Professions is tackling the greatest challenges to human health — and it all begins with research. Your support helps our faculty develop and conduct scientific research, publish their findings, and advance health care for everyone,
