Jean Dreyfus Boissevain Undergraduate Scholarships for Excellence in Chemistry

The Board of Directors created the Jean Dreyfus Boissevain Lectureship for Undergraduate Institutions in April 2010. The Lectureship Program replaces The Jean Dreyfus Boissevain Undergraduate Scholarships for Excellence in Chemistry. The Scholarship program, created in 1993, made awards to 160 selected universities and colleges in acknowledgment of the environment those institutions provide to encourage undergraduates in the chemical sciences through research. The Foundation awarded $5,500 to these institutions for an exceptional undergraduate to carry out chemistry research with an active faculty member who served as a mentor. This award provided $4,500 to be used as a stipend for the selected undergraduate to participate in one summer of scholarly research. The remaining $1,000 was to be used to assist in defraying costs associated with the research and/or the professional advancement of the student.
