Funding Priorities


Chemistry Department Fund for Excellence

The Chemistry Department Fund for Excellence provides essential discretionary financial support, giving the Chair the flexibility to respond to the Department’s greatest needs and to act quickly when opportunities arise, for example, to provide support fpr our research seminar program. These funds are among the University’s most valuable resources because they provide the Chair with the necessary support to respond to the Department’s most urgent unbudgeted needs and the ability to cultivate, sustain and further academic and research excellence on both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
