Chemistry Department Wins Unsolicited Grant

The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation has selected the Chemistry Department as winner of an unsolicited grant of $5,500 to support research by an aspiring undergraduate chemist. Boston College was among those selected by the foundation's board to receive a grant on the basis of accomplishment in the chemical sciences and potential for providing an environment that encourages undergraduates to develop their interests in chemistry.

The award will support a selected undergraduate to participate in two summers of scholarly research. According to the terms of the award, the selected student must be a chemistry, chemical engineering or biochemistry major who intends to pursue a career in the chemical sciences.

"The department is greatly honored by this award," said Prof. Paul Davidovits, Chemistry chairman. "It is a recognition of the excellence in our undergraduate teaching program by a very important and well-respected foundation."
