Quayle Spectrum Scholar Award

project Description

The Spectrum Scholar Award was created in 2020. This annual award is given in acknowledgement of a graduate scholar whose personal and professional efforts over the past school year have contributed to diversity, inclusion and community engagement in the Department of Chemistry and/or the university more broadly. The nomination should include a description of specific actions undertaken by the student in support of full engagement. Nominations may come from any member of the chemistry community.

The inagural award had two winners who each received a full award of $1,500. Congratulations to Ana Cheng and Tamra Blue!


The entire chemistry community is invited to nominate graduate scholars for this award. Only graduate scholars are eligible to receive this award.
