Your gift in any amount to the funds below provide support for chemistry students. You can use the Donate button to give online.
This fund provides money for special opportunities or extraordinary needs.
These activities and others like them enrich our students immeasurably, enhancing the education they receive at UIS—but we could not do any of them without the discretionary money given to this fund.
The net income from the Fund is used to purchase "big ticket" laboratory equipment in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UIS. The equipment purchases shall be restricted to laboratory equipment for the physical or biological sciences programs that would be used, though not exclusively, in the undergraduate laboratory courses. The expenditures are not necessarily made each year, but rather the net income is allowed to reinvest in the principal of the Fund until the principal reaches at least $30,000 in 2003 dollars adjusted for inflation.
Currently, the Chemistry Department does not currently have any targeted scholarship funds. You could be the first donor to create a named scholarship fund that targets the students you specify in the Chemistry Department.
