Dr. Sinkala was a graduate of the UAB School of Public Health and a leader in policy and research for implementation of healthcare delivery in his beloved country of Zambia. His vision and passion for public health will be deeply missed. For these reasons, colleagues, friends, and admirers have come together to create a scholarship in his name. The Moses Sinkala Zambia Scholarship provides much needed financial assistance to deserving students in the University of Zambia School of Medicine (UNZA SOM) who demonstrate an interest in serving the public health needs of Zambia as was a priority of Dr. Sinkala. To pay tribute to the research and service programs between UAB and Zambia to which Dr. Sinkala was deeply committed, the fund will resides at and is administered by the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) under the direction of an external selection committee.

The 2015 recipients are Frances Mupeta with research study focusing on TB and Christopher Newton whose study focusing on HPV. Each received a $2,500 award to offset research expenses.

The Sparkman Center is very appreciative to those that have donated to the Moses Sinkala Endowed Scholarship.
