If you would like to give back to the Chemistry and Physics Department, we have two funds that support the academic work of our students, faculty and staff; the Chemistry Enhancement Fund and the Chemistry Endowment Fund.
Chemistry Enhancement FundThis fund was established in 2002 by members of the Department of Chemistry. This fund is an expendable fund, which can be accessed at anytime, was established to enhance the scholarly activities of the Department of Chemistry. On an on-going basis, the faculty of the Department of Chemistry will make recommendations to the Dean of Arts and Science for the use of this fund.
Previous uses of the Enhancement Fund are:
2010: Support the travel of an undergraduate student to an international conference to report her departmental research
2009: Supported the development of the 1st year physics lab manual
2008: Supported the purchase of special computer monitors for a faculty member
2006: Supported the purchase of specialized software to search chemical literature
Chemistry Endowment Fund
This fund was established in 2007. The initial donation was given by the Canadian Society for Chemistry Board of Directors for the work performed by members of the department during the 2006 National Canadian Society Chemistry Conference and Exhibition held in Halifax. The purpose of the donation was to establish a legacy for the 2006 CSC conference and to enhance the scholarly activity of the Department of Chemistry at MSVU. Income produced from the endowment may be used to support such things as student conference travel, equipment and software purchases, and other activities in support of the scholarship of the Department. The faculty of the Department of Chemistry will meet to decide the intended disposition of the funds available in that year and will take their recommendations to the Dean of Arts and Science for approval.
