The purpose of the Education Fund is to provide educational opportunities to our members. To date, this fund has been used to provide trainee excellence awards and to co-sponsor multidisciplinary seminars. Future plans for the fund include undergraduate scholarships and postgraduate trainee fellowships. Members are encouraged to make tax-deductible contributions to the fund, which is comprised entirely of private donations.
The Alumni and Faculty Association's quarterly newsletter, The MD Anderson Connection, currently arrives at the door of all alumni members as an insert in the Conquest magazine.
