The Distinction in Research and Creative Work is a University award for select undergraduates, granted at commencement, which appears on the transcript and diploma. More specifically, in the Department of Chemistry, this award recognizes Rice B.S. chemists whose research discoveries will form a substantial component of an important publication. The submission and review processes are often not fast enough for researchers to see their work in print before graduation. A pre-publication formal description of the research (e.g., a submission-ready manuscript or a CHEM 492/3 Honors Thesis or the equivalent) with a detailed accounting of the nominee’s contribution and those of other authors is sufficient. Applicants must also be in good academic standing and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.30 in courses completed at Rice.
Required Application Materials:
Optional, but encouraged: Applications are encouraged to include a short letter of support from your research advisor.
Deadline for Final Submission of Materials: Last day of classes of semester before graduation
Please send all application materials to Nancy Adler, Academic Program Administrator: email@example.com
