The Ruth and Martin Levine Scholarship in Graduate Medical Sciences is made possible by the generous donation of Ruth R. Levine, PhD. Dr. Levine was the first Associate Dean of Graduate Medical Sciences and a faculty member at BUSM for many years. Given her own life experiences her wish was to allocate “income to provide annual scholarship awards to one or more graduate students enrolled in the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences, who have demonstrated excellent scholarship. Preference shall be given to female students who have reached their 30th birthday and are returning to academia after an interruption”.
Emily Peschel, a first year student in our MS in Forensic Anthropology program, is the recipient of the Malmberg Scholarship from the American Swedish Institute for Scholars. You can read more about Emily’s research here or the MS degree in Forensic Anthropology on their website.

What students have said about prior events:
“The Virtual Fair was extremely convenient and useful. I was able to communicate with multiple schools of my interest and ask questions. This Virtual Fair also saved me time and traveling fees if I were to visit the schools’ campuses instead.”
“I thought the virtual fair was extremely helpful. Chatting with the school representatives helped give me some direction for what I’d like to pursue, as well as some helpful tips/expectations for the application process.”
“I feel that this was great concept…It gave me an opportunity to ask questions that may not have been answered on their website and to see other potential students’ questions that I may not have thought to ask.”
“It was perfect. I loved the fact that school representatives gave out their e-mail addresses and encouraged us to contact them.”
“The whole system was very user friendly.”
