In the past three years, we have had two chemistry majors win a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. This fellowship is for students pursuing a graduate degree in science and engineering, providing $30,000 in annual stipends for three years plus a $10,500 allowance for education and travel costs.
Another recent chemistry student was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship. This fellowship allows U.S. graduating seniors, graduate students, young professionals and artists to study abroad for one academic year.
In addition, many of our students are elected to be members of Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest and most widely known national academic honor society. In the Class of 2012, seven chemistry majors were inducted to Phi Beta Kappa (out of a total of 19 college-wide). Three chemistry majors (out of 19) were inducted in 2013.
