UE Professor Receives Award from Dreyfus Foundation
Posted: Thursday, August 4, 2016
Kristy Miller, University of Evansville professor and department of chemistry chair, has received a Jean Dreyfus Boissevain Lectureship award from the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation, Inc. The purpose of this prestigious award, which totals $18,500, is to support a lectureship and undergraduate research in the chemical sciences. Nominations for the award are reviewed by distinguished faculty in the chemical sciences.
Some of the funds from the award granted to Miller will be used to bring a leading researcher to the University of Evansville campus to give at least two lectures in the chemical sciences. One lecture will be designed to be accessible to a wide audience. The other lectures may be more technical in nature. The lecturer will spend a few days at UE and interact with students and a broad range of faculty.
Another portion of the award will be used to support two UE undergraduates in summer research as they work with mentors in contemporary chemistry.
Nominations for the Jean Dreyfus Boissevain Lectureship award are reviewed by distinguished faculty in the chemical sciences. Applications are accepted from departments in the chemical sciences at primarily undergraduate institutions in the states, districts, and territories of the United States of America.
