Support Chemistry

The world needs leaders, innovators, thinkers and doers. The world needs problem solvers and global citizens that will confront the challenges and opportunities ahead.  Our alumni and donors play an integral role in ensuring our remarkable students are able to receive a world-class University of Saskatchewan education and become the next generation of leaders, professionals, and community members the world needs.

Department Priorities

We are striving to inspire students to succeed by investing in tomorrow’s thinkers and creators. We are seeking the critical philanthropic support needed to reach new levels of excellence in each of these areas for the Department of Chemistry.

Undergraduate Student Awards
We are seeking philanthropic support to increase the number of scholarships and bursaries available to support our undergraduate students.    

Together, we will create need-based bursaries to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to realize their full potential. Removing financial obstacles will provide access to a USask education for scores of students who could otherwise not afford to attend.  

New merit-based scholarships will reward academic achievement. Scholarships are our best opportunity to recruit the most promising students who will go on to change the world. Only you can make this happen. 

Graduate Research Fellowships

Graduate students are researchers and scholars with the skills to make major contributions to their fields. Graduate fellowships allow us to attract the most promising students whose research will change the world. Your support will expand our graduate research fellowships and help train the next generation of researchers, teachers, innovators and thought leaders.

Visionary Spaces

Lecture halls, laboratories and libraries have been core to our university’s incredible track record of innovation and impact throughout its storied history. Ensuring laboratories are refurbished and adequately equipped is a top priority. Gathering places for people to collectively address the challenges of the future is invaluable. Together, we can reimagine the learning spaces for tomorrow’s students and make them a reality.

For me researching about Chemistry is a privilege and sharing that knowledge with others is a great honor and responsibility. Personally, the exploration of new molecules in Organic Chemistry brings me immense joy, passion, and fulfillment.

The support provided by this scholarship is invaluable to me. As a Ph.D. student, sometimes the monthly stipend is not enough to pay all essential expenses and tuition obligations. This scholarship will significantly alleviate some of those concerns, allowing me to focus more intently on my research and academic pursuits.
