Through the generous gifts of faculty, staff, alumni and friends, the Department of Microbiology and Immunology is able to provide scholarships and awards to graduate students in recognition of their scientific achievements and contributions to the graduate program, support undergraduate students who wish to pursue independent research during the summer months, recruit new faculty members, and invite outstanding scientists to speak in the departmental seminar series and symposia.
