To support some of the Whiting School’s most talented researchers and teachers, the Faculty Scholars program was initiated in 2006. Funded through generous gifts, faculty members hold a prestigious, named Faculty Scholar appointment for a three-year term, and receive financial support to promote innovative research, teaching activities, and entrepreneurial thinking. To date, six alumni have established Faculty Scholar funds.
