Centennial Scholars Program

The goal of the Centennial Scholars Program is to develop faculty whose diversity enhances the quality of education and research at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, and who may serve as visible and available role models for students and trainees, especially those from underrepresented minority backgrounds.

The Centennial Scholars Program is offered based on the conviction that the patient care, research and educational enterprise of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and the effectiveness of the medical school in serving the needs of the citizens of Wisconsin receive a direct and substantial benefit if there is broad diversity among the school’s students, faculty and staff.
