Fellowship Celebration

2024 Event

On April 9, 2024, we joined Dean Andrea Baccarelli for Fellowship Celebration, an evening dedicated to connecting our incredible Harvard Chan students with the donors who generously support their education.

In addition to Dean Baccarelli, Harvard Chan students Gabriela Rosa and Alberto Inzulza Galdames gave remarkable speeches at the event. Live music was performed by Boston Bossa, featuring talented students from our very own Harvard Chan community. And we provided a festive array of diverse cuisines and opportunities for celebrating and mingling between students and fellow supporters.

Impact of Financial Aid

Transforming Health Through the Goldsmith Fellowship

In 2004, Richard and Ronay Menschel established the endowed Horace W. Goldsmith Fellowship, which has helped several students every year since then pursue their education at the Harvard Chan School. Because of the ripple effect of financial aid, fellowships benefit not only the students themselves but also the lives they will touch throughout their public health careers. In the video below, which was shown at Fellowship Celebration in 2019, we hear from the Menschels about why they contribute to financial aid and from three Goldsmith Fellows about the impact of this support.
