My name is Geoff Hutchison, and I am Chair of the Graduate Recruiting Committee at Pitt. Our department is seeking talented undergraduates who wish to pursue graduate study in chemistry. We invite you to nominate your top two students for a Chair’s Scholar Fellowship in the Dept. of Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh.
The Chair’s Scholar Fellowship can include a summer research fellowship of up to $7,300 over four months to support a research experience in the summer before matriculation and an Excellence Award of $4,500 over their first three terms at Pitt. These awards are on top of our generous graduate stipend, full tuition, and health insurance provided to all graduate students.
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh offers a world-class academic environment for graduate students and research at the forefront of chemical science. Unique strengths include collaborative research, drug discovery, pioneering spectroscopic techniques, and computational chemistry. Faculty in the department are active in many interdisciplinary programs and institutes, including the University of Pittsburgh Drug Discovery Institute, the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Pitt’s Center for Energy, the Pitt Center for Simulation and Modeling, the Pittsburgh Quantum Institute, the Petersen Institute for NanoScience and Engineering, and the joint Pitt-Carnegie Mellon Computational Biology program. More can be found on our website: http://www.chem.pitt.edu/.
Pittsburgh, with a low cost of living, a wealth of culture, recreation, and high quality of life, has been repeatedly rated as one of America’s Most Livable Cities.
Please contact us with the names, e-mail addresses, campus mailing addresses and research interests of your two top students before November 1st. This will allow us time to inform students of their nomination and explain what they need to do to apply for fellowship consideration. The nomination form can be found online: http://www.chem.pitt.edu/undergraduate/chairs-scholar-fellowship-nomination.
We look forward to hearing from you and some excellent Oregon State University chemistry undergraduatestudents. Thank you also in advance for your help in making this program a success.
Feel free to contact me if you need more information.
