The Claudia Smith Community/Public Health Scholarship

The Claudia Smith Community/Public Health Scholarship

The 50th Anniversary of UMSON's Community/Public Health Master's Specialty presents a wonderful opportunity to endow the Claudia Smith Community/Public Health Scholarship that was initiated when Dr. Smith retired in 2011 after a distinguished 40-plus year career in Community/Public Health at UMSON.

Dr. Smith was an influential educator, accomplished scholar, and a mentor to countless students throughout her career. She is committed to public health nursing, including environmental health nursing. Dr. Smith continues to contribute to public health nursing, education and community/population practice. She is proud that this scholarship in her name serves as a legacy for future students.

We need to raise $ 8,452 before December 31, 2016 to qualify for the University of Maryland Baltimore Foundation match of 50 cents on every gift and pledge dollar. This means that any gift or pledge you make to the Claudia Smith Community/Public Health Scholarship will automatically increase by 50 percent!

How can you help?

We invite you to partner with us in this effort to honor a legendary educator. If we combine our gifts and pledges we can reach, and even exceed, the goal to endow the scholarship! We ask each of you to join in this effort by making a contribution today to the Claudia Smith Community/Public Health Scholarship.


If endowment level is not reached, funds may be used for outright scholarship support of Community Public Health students. Funds will only be matched if endowment level is reached.
