Annual Fellowships for Doctoral Study: Mailman School of Public Health
PhD students at the Mailman School need a minimum of five years to complete their degrees. With overall tuition costs nearing $170,000 per student, fellowship gifts are an essential source of funding to cover tuition and stipends.
Another record-breaking Columbia Giving Day is in the books. This year, the third annual online event raised $11,064,924 through 10,452 gifts from all 50 states and 53 countries.
Amelia J. Alverson, who has served as senior vice president for development at Columbia University Medical Center for the past five years, has been appointed executive vice president for university development and alumni relations.
“I can think of no better person to help steward this great institution and to build upon the sense of loyalty and enthusiasm now seen throughout the extended Columbia community,” said President Lee C. Bollinger.
