The department of chemistry recognizes outstanding achievements made by our graduate students. Exceptional students are nominated annually by the chemistry faculty for the following awards:

Best Teaching Assistant Award: This award consists of receiving a certificate and a $500.00 check. To be considered for this award, nominees must receive high marks on their student evaluations in addition to receiving a nomination from their direct supervisor.
