Marshall Weinberg has long been concerned with population issues, in particular how malnutrition, poor health, and lack of education affect societies, and how populations impact the environment.

In conjunction with this interest, Weinberg established an Endowment Fund to help support research in these areas. Weinberg Fund recipients are PSC-affiliated junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students who conduct research with potential benefit for international populations.

This award is used flexibly in ways that the recipient feels will best enhance their ability to complete their research goals.
