The William and Geri Green Chemistry Book Fund provides an award by way of a gift card in the amount of $600 from the University bookstore, limited to textbooks and course related materials. This award is given on a yearly basis to a sophomore chemistry student. All second semester sophomore students declaring chemistry as their major are eligible regardless of GPA, to be used in their junior year. If in a given year, no sophomore declares chemistry as a major, no money will be awarded. Any unused funds will remain in the account to grow the fund.

The recipient is chosen by a random draw from all students declaring their major in their sophomore year. The chair of the Chemistry department is present and will make the selection in August prior to the start of the Fall semester.

An award by way of a gift card
