Thanks to the generosity of several alumni and others interested in helping deserving chemistry and biochemistry students, the Department of Chemistry has some resident tuition scholarships and book prizes available to students who are currently UW students and declared biochemistry or chemistry majors.
Depending on the particular award, academic merit, financial need, career goals, employment history, extracurricular activities, and undergraduate research record are among the criteria used to determine the recipients. Generally, the scholarships are awarded to students who have been in the Department for a year or more.
Completed applications are due by 4pm on November 30, 2012. The scholarship committee will meet in December 2012 to choose recipients. Awards will be disbursed for Winter quarter 2013.
