Sandy Kemp Memorial Scholarship


Thank you for your interest in Doctors for Global Health and its Annual General Assembly.


DGH established the Sandy Kemp Memorial Scholarship in memory of founding DGH board member, Spanish Professor Sandy Kemp whose life exemplified the DGH principles of action. The fund was established to help students and others in financial need to attend DGH General Assemblies. It was designed to subsidize expenses outside of travel.


For those who are able, please note on the GA registration form the opportunity to contribute to the Sandy Kemp Scholarship Fund. The more generous the donations, the more Sandy Kemp assistance that can be divided among deserving applicants. In some years, Sandy Kemp Scholars have had their entire registration, room and board fees covered.
