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 the host countries.

The Fund has already benefited from the generosity of Lynn’s husband, John Lee Compton, and a host of Lynn’s friends and colleagues. Please consider making a contribution to the Lynn Toby Fisher Fund by designating it on your gift in a note or comment.
