Help BIOE Build a Better Future

Support Student Scholarships TodayContact Us
The Clark School is achieving rapid progress in its research, education and entrepreneurship missions, fueled in part by state funding but more and more by private philanthropy‚ generous gifts from alumni, friends and corporate partners.
The Fischell Department of Bioengineering is an important factor in the Clark School's progress, contributing significantly to key school initiatives such as energy and healthcare, and has every expectation of being a part of the Clark School's drive for excellence.
Like the school, we count on private support to address key priorities, including graduate fellowships, professorships, and undergraduate scholarships. Please do your part to help us advance. Now more than ever, even a few hundred dollars can make the difference between a talented student obtaining a Terp education or not. Contribute to the department and support our mission to transform lives through exceptional educational and research opportunities.

A Destination for the Engineers of Tomorrow

With its opening in January 2018, A. James Clark Hall became the new home of the Fischell Department of Bioengineering and the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices. Clark Hall offers more than 100,000 square feet of instructional and research space, including the Leidos Innovation Lab - in which students from all eight engineering departments work collaboratively on cross-disciplinary research and design work.

Our most important need is for graduate fellowships. These will help us attract the best candidates into our highly productive Ph.D. program, and thus improve our chances of winning research funding and placing more of our Ph.D.s as professors in universities around the world.

In early 2018, the Clark School of Engineering opened the doors to A. James Clark Hall - a custom-designed home for the Fischell Department of Bioengineering and the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices. This 184,000-square-foot building signals a new era for the university and for human health advancements everywhere.

Discretionary funds for professors have multiple effects. Discretionary funds to help new faculty set up their laboratories and quickly become productive teachers and researchers are vital.  Discretionary funds will also allow our graduate students to participate in the most prestigious research conferences‚ often presenting their thesis work. Named professorships, even small ones, give specific faculty the flexibility to peruse new areas of research areas where funding opportunities exist, but only if the proof-of-concept experiments already have been done.

Scholarships bring more young people into our field. BIOE attracts some of the best undergraduates in the Clark School.  We are always in need of more scholarship funds to make sure these young scholars can maximize their educations.
