The Sam Dubal Fellowship in Critical Cultural and Medical Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley
The Sam Dubal Fellowship in Critical Cultural and Medical Anthropology honors the legacy of Sam Dubal, M.D., Ph.D. ’15, as an anthropologist, activist, medical doctor, professor, and ardent contributor to many vibrant intellectual communities. Dubal’s family generously established a fellowship following his tragic disappearance during a hike on Mt. Rainier in October 2020. The Dubal family’s gift, combined with support from friends, family, and community members, and matched with funds from an anonymous donor, will create a $1M endowment to provide full support for doctoral students in the Anthropology Department in the Social Science Division of UC Berkeley’s College of Letters & Science.

The purpose of this fund is to provide support for medical anthropology graduate students in the UW's Department of Anthropology who are pursuing work related to racial justice in medicine, health, or social movements. It is the Donors' hope that this fund will inspire recipients to become activist scholars, directly addressing racism and other forms of inequities fueling health disparities.
