2016 – 2017 Pfizer AIR Diversity Fellowship Program

Filed under: Announcements @ 8:56 am
Dear Oregon State University Chemistry Colleagues
 
I’m writing to let you know we are running our Pfizer Academic-Industrial Relations Diversity fellowship program again, for the 2016 – 2017 academic year.  The program is essentially the same as last year. We are looking for enthusiastic undergraduates from historically under-represented ethnic groups to participate in this research fellowship program.  We are asking for your help in identifying these individuals from your own research groups and undergraduate classes.  The same requirements and qualifications apply.  This is a $15K fellowship divided into $12K for the student stipend and $3000 that may be used for lab and travel costs.  The student is required to write a report of his/her progress in January 2017 and will be invited to present his/her research at the La Jolla site at the end of the 2017 summer.  Application deadline is October 17th, 2016.
 
The research areas of that we will consider funding include organic synthesis, analytical chemistry, computational chemistry, crystallography and structural/chemical biology.
 
Attached is a cover letter describing the program in more detail along with a copy of the application and a flyer to post around the department. Please also feel free to circulate to other interested colleagues/students. I can also provide former example applications if students need an idea of what we are looking for in a successful application.

We look forward to hearing from you and some excellent Oregon State University chemistry undergraduate
students.  Thank you also in advance for your help in making this program a success.

Feel free to contact me if you need more information.


Sincerely,
 
Paul Richardson
