Research-Focused Giving

Our pioneering faculty, staff, and students conduct research spanning diverse areas. Providing resources for cutting-edge science enhances our overarching research mission.

The Chemistry Discovery Fund gives our faculty a way to continue exploring fresh ideas. This research competition provides faculty with overhead-free grants to get new projects started. The Chemistry Undergraduate Research fund exposes our students to a wider breadth of knowledge and demonstrates the interconnectedness of all human endeavors.
