Summer Research Scholarships

Chemistry majors are eligible to apply for summer undergraduate research scholarships. These scholarships are intended for undergraduates already engaged in research activities who can benefit from essentially full-time summer research. Only those students who will be enrolled as undergraduates during the next academic year are eligible to apply. Applications from students and supporting statements from their faculty research mentors are due in the Undergraduate Office in early February.

The summer research awards are announced each year at the annual Chemistry Honors Banquet in April. The summer research scholarships are made possible by monies from various contributions from individuals as well as corporate sponsors.

The Hutton Honors College Undergraduate Honors Research Grant Program is another source of monies for juniors and seniors engaging in research. All eligible applicants to the departmental scholarship program are also expected to file applications with this program as well. The criteria are: promise of productive scholarship, motivation, and skill in research (as reflected by grades and faculty recommendations; significance of project, feasibility and quality of proposal; realism of the budget and equitable distributions of grants among departments). The amount of the award varies. Application is made through the Hutton Honors College (324 N. Jordan Ave.).

Merit Scholarships and Awards

Several scholarships and awards are given each year to students based on their academic accomplishments. These scholarships vary in amount from $500 to $1000. Two are awarded to top seniors going on to graduate school in chemistry. These scholarships and awards are funded mainly by individuals.
