Curci Foundation gifts $1.75M for PhD students in life sciences

The University of Utah is proud to announce a major gift from Shurl and Kay Curci Foundation. The Curci Foundation Ph.D. Scholarship will fund two years of graduate school for students pursuing PhDs in life sciences, prioritizing two groups who have historically been overlooked for financial support: women and international students.

The Curci foundation will give approximately $1.75 million to fund two cohorts of six incoming life science graduate students for two years each. The first cohort will be funded for August 2022 and August 2023, and the second cohort will be funded for August 2023 and August 2024. The scholarships will include full tuition, stipend, and benefits for the fellows. The selection of the Fall 2022 cohort of Curci Scholarships is now underway, and the awardees will be announced in the following weeks.
