Chemistry Scholarships

Were you one of those kids who begged for a chemistry set? Were you also one of those kids who burned off your eyebrows during your first experiment yet – much to your parents’ chagrin – couldn’t wait to get back to the beakers and chemicals as soon as you got home from the doctor? Ouch, but awesome: You’ve known your career path practically forever!

Though many majors spend the bulk of their time after college in laboratories, a degree in chemistry has many other applications in the real world. Some students elect to take the MCATs and go to medical school while others pair their knowledge of chemistry with another major like business, journalism, engineering, math, physics or biology. Lots also go on to teach kindergarten through college, though a master’s or doctoral degree is needed for the latter. Also necessary? Dollars to fund your education, like those given as chemistry scholarships.

The cost of books, laboratory fees and graduate school add up quickly but chemistry majors have plenty of chemistry scholarship opportunities available to help them pay for school. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga awards $45,000 in chemistry scholarships to students each year and Oregon State University grants scholarships to its entering, transferring and continuing students and private organizations like the American Chemical Society and the Art of Problem Solving are great places to look if your school does not offer university-based chemistry scholarships. Chemistry majors are also eligible for general science scholarships as well as awards requiring essays and excellent grades in addition to just chemistry scholarships.

Here are a few of the many chemistry scholarship awards available but for more, conduct a free scholarship search to discover additional scholarships for which you qualify.
