Giving to the School of Biomedical Informatics


The UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics (SBMI) is pushing the boundaries of how we use data to improve clinical health care delivery and accelerate biomedical discovery. Join us on our journey to discover, innovate and impact.

Giving to the School of Biomedical Informatics (SBMI) not only supports our students, faculty and researchers, it also aids in paving the way for future advancements in the biomedical informatics field. At its core, SBMI aims to educate students as they pursue solutions in health care that will improve quality, reduce cost and increase access; won’t you join them in that pursuit?

This is how you can make a difference.

Dean’s Excellence Fund
In order to support a diverse set of strategic initiatives, this fund allows SBMI’s Dean to strengthen the school's highest priorities. This may include faculty recruitment, student scholarships, infrastructure development or research funding.

Scholarship Funds
These funds give exemplary students the tuition assistance they need to attain academic achievement in our graduate programs. These current-use funds are essential to the success of the school. Creating an endowed scholarship allows our institution to attract the finest students, many of whom might not otherwise be able to afford to nurture their talents without the benefit of this essential financial assistance. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit, but also may consider financial need and other factors, if the donor chooses.

Below is a list of funds that need your support:

Doris Ross Scholarship Fund
Dr. Noriaki Aoki Fund
SBMI Scholarship Excellence Fund
SBMI Student Governance Scholarship Fund
The Vivian L. Smith Foundation Scholarships in Clinical Informatics
