Funding - Faculty, Residents and Medical Students
Through the generosity of
benefactors interested in global health, three separate Wake Forest School of
Medicine funds were established that offer financial assistance to selected
medical students, residents and faculty for global health experiences.
The funds and the purpose of each fund, as stated in the fund agreement, are:
“To provide financial
assistance to one or more students, enrolled in the Doctor Medicine program at
any level, for travel to a developing or “third-world” country to gain an
awareness of and appreciation for the medical communities or systems of such
countries and how they compare with the communities and systems in the United
Wake Forest University
Medical Mission Training Fund

to MD students and residents who wish to pursue Christian medical missions
Pennell Pro Humanitate
“The Pennell Pro
Humanitate Vitae Fund was created to support and facilitate volunteer medical
service in less developed countries by faculty, residents, and medical students
of Wake Forest University Health Sciences, North Carolina Baptist Hospital and

Pro Humanitate Vitae Fund are accepted on a rolling basis
and should be submitted within 1 – 6 months prior to the date of travel.
