(November 28, 2018) The Department of Chemistry is excited to announce a new fellowship to be awarded in the spring of 2019, and offered in the fall of 2019.  The Thomas C. Ward Graduate Student Fellowship honors Department of Chemistry Professor Emeritus Thomas C. Ward and was created by friends, family and colleagues of Professor Ward to honor his work in Chemistry. 

This will be a competitive fellowship offered on merit and will be awarded to a new graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in the Department of Chemistry or the MACRO program; preference will be given to those interested in physical polymer chemistry or physical chemistry. 

One recipient will be selected every year and will receive an award of $10,000 to be split equally over the first two years of graduate studies, assuming the recipient remains in good academic standing after completion of the first year.  This award will be offered in addition to the standard tuition and graduate stipend offered by the department.
