Program & Scholarship Support
Because of the Consortium and Joint Degree Program, the University of Minnesota has become a leading institution pioneering interdisciplinary training and research on the societal implications of the life sciences. Private and corporate contributions allow us to expand our unique programming, research, and scholarship. We invite you to participate in our success.
Where your gifts are needed:
Joint Degree Program Student Support
Although the JDP saves students money by streamlining the route to two degrees, total tuition costs per student can range from $110,000 to $175,000, depending on what degree a student pairs with a JD. Scholarship funding can ease a student’s debt burden, help us attract top students, and allow the JDP to be accessible to those from diverse financial backgrounds. Please consider contributing to the JDP Student Scholarship Fund, or establishing your own fund.
Conferences & Lectures
Consortium events offer debate on pressing issues in science, law, and medicine and are open to the public free of charge or at very low cost. Our events are videotaped and archived for public access on our website. By supporting the Consortium Fund for Conferences and Lectures, you will allow us to bring national scholars to the University, give students a broader view of issues at the intersection of law and science, and help us offer continuing education credits—CLE and CME—and Responsible Conduct of Research credits to professionals across the University and Twin Cities.
Minnesota Journal of Law, Science & Technology (MJLST)
The Minnesota Journal of Law, Science & Technology is fast becoming a leading interdisciplinary publication and, in 2011, was ranked a top-10 law journal in each category in which we publish. The support of donors is vital in helping MJLST further its commitment to excellence.
We invite you to participate in our success.
