Support School of Public Health and Health Systems

Together we can build a healthy future

Please consider supporting one of the following priority projects:

School of Public Health and Health Systems building

The School of Public Health and Health Systems focuses on developing solutions to the world’s most pressing health challenges, such as reducing health inequalities, the health consequences of aging, global conflict and global climate change, water safety and health information management.

These solutions will be pursued by working strategically with the Faculty’s national and international stakeholders and leaders in public health such as the World Health Organization, Canadian Cancer Society, Public Health Agency of Canada and the Canadian Institute for Health Information, to integrate the most important and emerging needs of these agencies into our curriculum, training and research.

This ensures our research is directed at transformational public health care solutions and that our graduates are positioned to have an immediate impact leading these organizations.

Undergraduate scholarships

Among the many significant ways of recognizing students' achievements are scholarships, bursaries, and other awards. These are important ways to reward talented students for their accomplishments and provide financial assistance to help them with their educational expenses.

The University of Waterloo has a goal of ensuring that all qualified full-time undergraduate students have adequate financial assistance for their studies, and being offered a student award or scholarship can make the difference in whether or not a student chooses the University of Waterloo.

Graduate scholarships

The University of Waterloo's spirit of innovation continues to cultivate knowledge and ideas that have an impact on local, national, and international communities. Our graduate students contribute significantly to research that encompasses many areas — from public health to recreation management.

The School of Public Health and Health Systems will use these donations to leverage provincial matching programs. For every $5,000 disbursement by this fund, the Ontario government will contribute $10,000 towards a $15,000 OGS scholarship to support our bright and innovative graduate students.
