In the Fall 2020 semester, the Department of Chemistry received a grant from The Welch Foundation to support undergraduate research. With the funds from the grant, the Department has established the Chemistry Research for Undergraduates Program, which will start in August 2021. Undergraduate research experience is an invaluable opportunity and the Chemistry faculty are excited to be able to offer this opportunity to its students.
To be eligible for this program, a student needs to have completed both semesters of Organic Chemistry with a C or higher. Students who have transferred to ETBU from another institution need to have completed at least one semester at ETBU in addition to the Organic Chemistry requirement. We are blessed to be able to offer financial incentives to the students who apply and are accepted into the program.
The important dates for the application process and program are as follows:
March 1 - application opens
March 17 - application deadline
End of March - review of applications begins
Beginning of April - applicants will be invited to interview
End of April - final decisions will be made
