All Walter Zeit Fellows are listed in the College's Annual Report and Honor Roll and are recognized at a formal recognition dinner each year in autumn. During this dinner they present the Walter Zeit Fellowship Award to a senior student who has consistently displayed superior qualities of leadership, loyalty, selfless service, initiative and compassion toward his or her peers and to the Medical College of Wisconsin. These characteristics represent Dr. Walter Zeit's many contributions to the school during his affiliation with the Medical College.

Membership in the Walter Zeit Fellowship is attainable through a minimum commitment of $25,000, payable over a maximum of five years ($5,000 per year). A Zeit contribution may be designated to any purpose you choose.
