The form to apply for a Department of Chemistry Scholarship is now open! All undergraduate chemistry majors (ie. Science & Letters, Specialized Chemistry, CS + Chem) are eligible to apply.

More than 20 scholarships are available, with most in the $3000 range and a few in the $5000 range. Students only need to submit ONE application to be considered for ALL scholarships. Some awards are merit-based, while others are need-based. The Scholarship Committee and the Chemistry Business Office will determine which scholarships applicants qualify for.

These scholarships are generously donated by our alumni and outside sponsors. Please note that our donors have stipulated that these scholarships must be awarded to students enrolled as chemistry majors during the academic year following the award. If you are transferring to a different major during the upcoming summer or upcoming academic year, you will not be eligible to receive an award.

The deadline to apply for a scholarship is Monday, March 25th at 11:59pm. Awardees will be notified by the end of July if they have received an award. You can access the application form at the following link:

Please email Dr. Jordan Axelson ( if you have any questions.
