Many students at the School of Public Health came to know Grau through the Dominican Republic Health Outreach Project, which she initiated. Since its inception, more than 130 students traveled there with her to work in the Haitian bateyes.

Memorial contributions in her name may be directed to the Rutgers University Foundation for the School of Public Health Kate Grau Scholarship Fund.
