Scholarships and Fellowships

We offer several opportunities for our students to help fund their studies in Denver and abroad.

The Updike Scholarship

The Christian Updike, MD Endowed Scholarship Fund was established by a generous pledge from Jan C. and Phyllis A. Updike, who made a life-long commitment to improving global health. They have faithfully honored their son Christian for his perseverance as a loving child and young man, who was raised as they served on location in demanding assignments throughout the world.

The Updike Scholarship provides up to $10,000 in annual scholarship support to students enrolled in a graduate degree program and the global health affairs certificate program. The recipient should demonstrate academic achievement, leadership ability and promise as a future global health diplomat.

Please fill scholarship forms using the link below, then email your CV/resume to us, by simply clicking here. We will begin reviewing applications on May 11, 2018.
