Update on the Alumni Summer Research Fellowship Endowment Campaign

We want to thank everyone who has contributed towards our campaign to endow an undergraduate summer research fellowship. We strongly believe that research is integral to the educational experience of a student. Students engaged in the research process develop analytical and critical thinking skills that are applicable to all career paths open to the chemistry major. Most students conduct their research projects during the academic year, but treating their projects as part-time endeavors partly negates the benefits. For this reason, the faculty strongly believe that full-time summer research has the greatest impact on student learning.

The following alumni have made donations to the campaign. We hope we can add your name to this list in the near future. The amount per person doesn't have to be large if enough people participate in this.
