The Lynn Toby Fisher Scholarship Fund

Lynn Toby Fisher was a brilliant, warm, and generous woman who was deeply committed to the values exemplified in
Engineering World Health’s work: education, international engagement and understanding, science and innovation.
A member of the Board of Directors of Engineering World Health from 2014 until her untimely death in 2020, Lynn was especially passionate about EWH’s outreach to, and support of, engineering and science students from the countries in which Engineering World Health provides services, especially economically disadvantaged students.

To support EWH in this mission, friends and family established the Lynn Toby Fisher Scholarship Fund for Programs in Low-Resource Countries. The purpose of the Fund is to enable economically disadvantaged students to participate in EWH programs in low-resource countries, and in particular to enable the inclusion of students from EWH's program host countries.

The Fund has benefited from the generosity of Lynn’s husband, Lee Compton, and a host of Lynn’s friends and colleagues.

Thanks to the creation of this Fund and the generous support it has received, dozens of students from around the world have participated in Engineering World Health's programs and worked to improve healthcare delivery in their own communities.
