Current Funding Priorities

The Washington State University Spokane campus has identified the following funds as the highest priorities for the campus at this time:

WSU Spokane Chancellor’s Excellence Fund

This fund supports the most urgent needs in teaching, research, and scholarship at WSU Health Sciences Spokane. Unrestricted funds enable quick action in the face of unanticipated needs, and help to ensure continuity in educational and research excellence.

Health Sciences Research Excellence Fund

Research funding has tripled since our founding as a health sciences campus in 2010. This fund supports our faculty and student research efforts. Symposiums, lectures, along with professional development and opportunities to disseminate research are all areas that benefit from your investment.

Chancellor’s Scholarship Fund

Scholarships are awarded annually to Spokane campus students enrolled in medicine, pharmacy, nursing, nutrition and exercise physiology, and speech and hearing. Scholarship funding enables students to realize the freedom to participate fully in leadership opportunities, research, academic clubs, and civic engagement.

Gleason Institute for Neuroscience

WSU’s Gleason Institute for Neuroscience is taking an integrated approach to research and care for those suffering from ALS and other debilitating neurogenerative diseases. Investment will support research, care, and exposure to adaptive technology for patients, families, and their care givers.
