Undergraduate Chemistry Scholarships Application

Application Overview

Students who wish to be considered as candidates for the Department of Chemistry's annual Undergraduate Scholarship cycle should complete and submit this application. In addition to responding to the application's questions, the application requires you to attach a brief statement of interest, resume, and to request a letter of support from a Chemistry faculty member or mentor. This letter of support, also referred to as "recommendation," will be solicited via the online application. In addition, transfer students will need to attach transcripts from previously attended undergraduate institutions. Please note that that the application will not allow scholarship candidates to apply for a specific award. Instead, eligible students will match themselves with the Undergraduate Chemistry Scholarships general listing and add the Undergraduate Chemistry Scholarships Application to My Applications. After candidates submit the online application, the Undergraduate Scholarships Committee will review applications and select awardees at its annual meeting.

General Open Dates

December 20 - February 7
