Chemistry & Biochemistry Scholarship Opportunities

The Catalyst Fund

The purpose of The Catalyst Fund is to support students who are research volunteers/investigators that are not receiving funding from other sources for their projects. Faculty members can utilize allowances to grant undergraduate students who are conducting research to purchase materials, including but not limited to chemicals, supplies, computer software related to research, and conference expenses. They may also use the funds to pay student’s registration to present at scientific conferences. Faculty may use up to $300 per student, per year with a maximum allowance of $1,200 annually. Interested faculty may apply for funding by submitting a short paragraph with a brief summary of their research and the request for funding at any time during the academic year.  Faculty would also provide documentations such as a quote or registration information, and the names(s) of the student(s) in their research group. Faculty are to submit their request to the Current Department Chair of Chemistry and Biochemistry at
