Support the Chemistry Department Today!

The University of Connecticut Department of Chemistry promotes high quality teaching, collaborative learning, and research programs that encompass modern aspects of analytical, biological, environmental, inorganic, organic, physical, and polymer chemistry.

Your support will provide critical resources for UConn students and faculty to focus on topics on the forefront of modern innovation, such as biological and biomedical problems, nanomaterials, and clean energy solutions. Your gift may also support undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and special activities such as seminars and lectures. Private support provides an edge for excellence.

A gift to the Chemistry Department may be made in honor of a faculty member or friend. A gift may support an existing scholarship or fund, create a new fund for current needs, or support programs into the future.

The following UConn Foundation accounts help supplement the activities and opportunities that are a vital part of the UConn chemistry experience. We hope that you will assist us by contributing to the program that best represents your hopes for the future of the department:
