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. Personal background, including being the first in your family to go college, having experienced personal or educational obstacles to go to college, and/or experience with diversity or diverse cultures will also be considered in the selection. Generally, the scholarships are awarded to students who have been in the Department for a year or more.
Students can print out the scholarship application (pdf).
Completed applications are due by 4pm on December 2. The scholarship committee will meet in December to choose recipients. Monetary awards will be disbursed for Winter quarter.
