Emory Receives $10 Million for Public Health School Scholarships

Emory University in Atlanta has announced a $10 million commitment from the O. Wayne Rollins Foundation to bolster a scholarship fund at its Rollins School of Public Health.

The funds will provide $2 million a year over five years in support of the James W. Curran Scholarship Fund, which was established in honor of the twentieth service anniversary of dean James W. Curran. Rollins is the nation's longest-serving dean of a school of public health.

"We are extremely grateful and humbled by this unexpected and sincerely generous gift," said Curran. "We have so much to celebrate here at Rollins and truly appreciate the overwhelming support of the Rollins Foundation toward our public health mission."
