Housing at Europa House in Urbana, within walking distance of the School of Chemical Sciences and the rest of the campus plus $500 to support travel to and return from Urbana
$800 for subsistence

Students must have at least two semesters of organic chemistry lecture and laboratory. They should also be inclined to pursue graduate studies in chemistry.  Application may be made at the website  For detailed information about the research areas of individual faculty members, please see
