Welch Research Scholarship
This scholarship is open to chemistry and biochemistry majors who wish to do research at Angelo State University with a professor in our department. A call for research proposals for this scholarship is sent out toward the end of each fall and spring semester. Current distributions are $1,500 and $3,200 for long semesters and summer research, respectively.
Student Research Courses (CHEM 4191, 4291, 4391)
The department makes available various opportunities for students to participate in research or independent study projects. These are usually most appropriate for junior- or senior-level students.
The simplest and most common way to start such a project is by contacting a faculty member to see whether he/she is able to supervise a CHEM 4191, 4291 or 4391 (research) course.
The course may entail a specific research project or may be conducted as either an independent study project or a traditional course, but only on a topic that is not covered in the standard curriculum.
These are some of our faculty members who may be interested in offering a research course, along with some of the topics that have been offered in the past or may be considered in the future:
Dr. Carter: Analytical chemistry, trace environmental analysis and speciation of environmentally important elements
Dr. Hobbs: Polymer-supported catalysis, organic synthesis, polymer chemistry, surface chemistry, “green” chemistry
Dr. Maxwell: Organic synthesis, enolate chemistry and spectroscopic analysis of organic compounds
Dr. Osborne: Biochemistry
Dr. Osterhout: Biochemistry
