The Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois
More than twenty years ago, the students and friends of Harold R. Snyder established an endowment fund in his honor to support undergraduate students with an interest in organic chemistry. Each year the Department of Chemistry is able to use these funds to host students with a broad range of chemistry interests for a portion of the summer.
The scholarship provides:
- $4,000 stipend for a ten-week stay in our department
- Housing in Urbana
- $750 for laboratory expenses
- Round trip airfare or mileage reimbursement
Students must have sophomore or junior standing at the time of nomination, plus two semesters of organic chemistry lecture and laboratory in order to be eligible. They should also be inclined to pursue graduate studies in chemistry.
For detailed information about the research areas of the individual faculty members, please see http://www.chemistry.illinois.edu/research/organic/organic_chemistry_faculty.html.
The deadline for 2013 Snyder Scholarship nominations is January 16, 2013. However, students interested in applying may ask for a one-week extension of the deadline by contacting Becky Duffield at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students must be nominated and have a letter of recommendation submitted by their nominator. Students who are nominated must submit a resume, a transcript, and a brief statement of research interests by the deadline.
