Donating to the Health Research Institute's student programs provides support to all affiliated students, from freshmen just beginning their studies to graduate students putting the final touches on their theses or dissertations. The Fellowship and Travel Grant programs provide students with funds to cover their tuition, materials, living expenses, and travel to conferences or meetings. Programs like the Journal Club give students necessary professional development opportunities, like workshops that teach them to create compelling scientific visuals and an arena where they can hone their presentation skills. A gift to HRI's student programs will increase the number of student we are able to support, thus giving these new scientists and engineers the best foundation on which to start their careers.
Over 50 scientists and engineers make up HRI's membership; some are just getting their first lab running, while others have devoted years to their research and students. All work tirelessly to create a safer, healthier world. A gift to HRI's faculty programs provides seed grant or cost share funding, creates new opportunities for professional development, and ultimately gives the membership more time to focus on what is important; their research, students, and sharing their discoveries with the scientific community.
