Scholarships & Awards

If you would like to apply for a chemistry or pre-professional departmental scholarship (in addition to any federal aid or UAS scholarships you might have), you will need to go the Scholarships page and fill out the Scholarship Application. All students MUST be admitted and complete the Scholarship Application every year by the December 15th deadline to be considered for any Tennessee Tech scholarships. This single application submitted through ScholarWeb is used for the awarding of over 600 scholarship opportunities. You must apply for these scholarships ANNUALLY by the published deadline each year, regardless of whether or not you were previously awarded a scholarship.

To get more information about which scholarships are offered, go to the Scholarships page and click on the box that says "Search Scholarships." Then click on "Majors." Select your major from the dropdown list, and you will see a list of all the available scholarships.

Chemistry Commons

Chemistry Commons Chemistry Commons Chemistry Commons

Our Chemistry Commons has seating for one or for a group, twelve total virtual desktop computers in Foster 413 and 414 for students to use, and comfortable seating for studying with a group.

Computer Resources

The Chemistry Department has robust software capable of advanced computation in its Learning Commons (Foster 413/414) as well as in faculty research labs of its computational chemists. The University possesses a campus site-license for HyperChem Molecular Modeling software. The Department has a site license for CambridgeSoft ChemDraw for routinely drawing structural formulas. Additionally, two workstations in the physical chemistry instructional lab run Gaussian for advanced computation. This software is used routinely in instruction throughout the curriculum as well as in undergraduate and graduate research. Two advanced computational laboratories are available in Foster Hall for faculty/student research projects. The Department implemented a VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) that allows students and faculty to run Microsoft and chemistry software on their own personal devices both on and off campus anywhere they can get a wireless signal.
