BUILD Scholar Award

Innovation and academic excellence are key to training the next generation of doctors, researchers and scientists. That's why Wayne State is proud to be a part of REBUILD Detroit, a partnership among Detroit institutions supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as part of its national BUILD (Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity) program.
