Thank you for joining us this Husky Giving Day and opening the door to discovery for undergraduate students in the Department of Chemistry! On Husky Giving Day, we raised $13,100 for summer undergraduate research scholarships! Because of YOU - alumni, parents, staff and friends - our summer research scholarship funding pool increased by 33% - from $40,000 to $53,100!!

Students are currently applying for the summer 2023 Rising Chem Star Undergraduate Research Scholarship and the committee will contact awardees by the end of this month.

Private support like yours makes a world of difference.

Your support helps students like Afrah who aspires to become a surgeon dedicated to patient care and a scientist engaged in medical research to expand our knowledge of the human body and develop medical treatments.

Your support helps students like Gabi,* who grew up in Seattle's Central District and is "very grateful to have had this opportunity to do research in a space I didn’t see myself in before."

Your support helps students like Elizabeth, who last summer, had her first opportunity to work on research full time because of a summer stipend and has given her confidence to pursue the Ph.D. in chemical biology.

We're looking forward to introducing you to our 2023 summer researchers!
