Moses Sinkala Endowed Scholarship for Zambian Students
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 University of Zambia post-graduate students from medicine, nursing, health services, or similar areas of study 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.
