Curie Club Outreach Award: 

This award will fund ($100-1,000) graduate students' projects to bring chemistry to the community. As chemistry graduate students, we are passionate about this cool science, but sometimes, we fall short when engaging with the public. Think about ideas to show people how fun and exciting Chemistry is. This is your chance to make them real, and as a plus, these kinds of projects look good on resumés as they show your ability to lead. Applications are due January 15th.                       

                                                                                                                             The winner of the 2024 award is Aria Ballance!

                             Please join us for a Q&A session on December 5th (Tuesday) from 10:00 am to 11:00 am, HEB 2040



Funds can support the creation of the Curie U Chemistry Graduate Fellowships, the Curie Endowed Chair, or other programs that build and engage all students in the Department of Chemistry. Curie Club will promote student success and support the quality and strength of scientific research and the U Chemistry's outstanding contribution to science.

Marie Curie

A century ago, Marie Curie became the first scientist ever to win 2 Nobel Prizes. Her spectacular scientific career was achieved despite the obligations of family, extreme prejudice against women, a relentless search for research funding, and the constant battle for recognition that was her due.
