Through the generosity of alumni and other friends of the department, the Chemistry Department is able to offer scholarships, fellowships, awards, and summer research support. Any student who is a chemistry major or is conducting research with a chemistry faculty member is eligible to apply for the awards. An overall GPA of 2.5 is recommended, but not required, for award eligibility; awards are based on both merit and financial need. Please note that applicants working with affiliated faculty members must ALSO be chemistry majors. Non-chemistry majors working with an affiliate faculty member are not eligible for these awards.
Award applications are available in mid-December and are typically due mid-February for both the summer and academic year awards. The common application is available on the Wisconsin Scholarship Hub, WiSH (https://wisc.academicworks.com/). Students must first complete the General Application on their WiSH dashboard (https://wisc.academicworks.com/users/sign_in), before applying to specific opportunities offered through the Department of Chemistry (https://wisc.academicworks.com/opportunities/9195)
To apply for academic year scholarships and/or summer research support, students complete just one application called Chemistry Undergraduate Scholarships and Research Support in WiSH.
More information can be found both in WiSH and on the chemistry website (https://www.chem.wisc.edu/content/chemistry-scholarships).
