Alizee McLorg has been accepted to attend the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) to pursue a Master of Science (MSc) in Demography and Health, for the fall of 2021. Post-graduation, she hopes to monitor and evaluate public health programs for East African populations to help ensure that public health systems and programs are equipped to prevent and treat diseases.
Alizee's undergraduate years at Syracuse University provided her with volunteer work with Somalian refugee youth. She found the work extremely rewarding and it led to two continuing studies and work experiences in Kenya taking Public Health at the University of Nairobi while interning at a community based organization and the second experience supporting data management at a U.S Army Medical Research site. She currently continues her work to improve health equity and investment in pursuing and solving global health challenges.
The Global Grant Scholarship will fund her masters program tuition and fees as well as living and visa expenses.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
