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.

Seniors Leave a Legacy

The 2024 Senior Class Gift Committee is raising funds for the first ever Bioengineering Senior Class Gift at UMD. Any donations made toward the Class Gift will go towards the BIOE Emergency Graduation Fund, which will financially support next year's graduating class in affording their graduation caps and gowns. If you are a 2024 graduating senior, or if you are family of a 2024 graduating senior, we invite you to give $20.24 and help leave a lasting legacy.

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.
