Scholarships And Awards

   The UNO Department of Chemistry is very fortunate to have a large number of benefactors who have made very generous donations to chemistry scholarship funds. These donors support 12 different chemistry funds, 10 of which directly aid students in their efforts to pay for their college degree. Over $10,000 was awarded to students for the 2012-2013 academic year.

   It is unusual for a department as small as ours to offer so many scholarships. As you look over the scholarship information, I invite you to apply for any scholarship for which you meet the criteria and think about the generosity of those who have donated to provide for your benefit.

Next round of applications to be accepted after Dec. 2013.
