Wagner Fellowship

In 1997, Bob and Mary Wagner established The Robert R. Wagner Fellowship Fund with the goal of providing fellowships to graduate students in the basic sciences in the School of Medicine.  Among Dr. Wagner’s notable contributions to UVA include his service as the first Chair of the Department of Microbiology and as the founding Director of the UVA Cancer Center. Mrs. Wagner began her generous support of graduate students soon after Dr. Wagner’s death in 2001. The Fellowship endowment became fully funded after Mrs. Wagner’s death in 2013 and is currently valued at approximately $5.3M. This incredible investment in the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at the University of Virginia is a lasting tribute to Dr. Wagner’s legacy.
