The global impact of Rice University is expanded and sustained by the accomplishments and support of its alumni and friends. The continued generosity of donors is paramount to the mission and goals of Rice Chemistry.
A current need is to upgrade the Department's undergraduate teaching equipment and instrumentation. Whether the instrumentation is traditional in nature, such as atomic absorption, or as mainstream as automated sampler systems, we strive to provide our students with state-of-the art teaching facilities.
Graduate education and research are also top priorities in the Chemistry Department. Graduate Student Fellowships are of crucial importance to attract and sustain a strong body of doctoral students, an important component of our research programs. Named endowment(s) for such Fellowships will complement and improve our chemistry graduate program, thereby contributing to educating and training the next generation of scientists to improve our healthcare, protect our environment, develop new and clean energy sources, and create the novel materials of the future for all intents and purposes for a better World.
We have several award and endowment funds that you can make a specific donation to or you can choose to donate to the Chemistry General Gift fund to help support our general departmental needs such as the projects outlined above.
