Our Giving Priorities

Chemical Engineering Endowment

The Department of Chemical Engineering recognizes the important roles that graduate students play in the discovery process: creating new knowledge, inspiring their teachers, and teaching undergraduate students. ChemE graduate students are supported through their first quarter at UW by endowment funds. Our goal is to triple these funds to provide support for their first, full, academic year. The Chemical Engineering Endowment Fund was established to ensure that the broadest range of promising, talented men and women have access to our top-ranked graduate training program. Providing support for a full year will increase the educational opportunities for graduate students and strengthen our ability to recruit the best and the brightest.


John C. Berg Endowed Scholarship

Among the highest priorities of the chemical engineering department is undergraduate student support. Dr. John C. Berg, one of the department's most beloved professors, has generously established this scholarship to offset the financial burden of tuition for deserving students. Over 2,500 students have been taught by Dr. Berg throughout his 50 year tenure with the department. As he continues to teach our students, more future chemical engineers will benefit from his knowledge and unparalleled dedication to the department. A gift to this scholarship will honor the legacy of Dr. John C. Berg.


John C. Berg Endowed Lectureship in Interfacial and Colloid Science

This endowment will enhance the University's ability to recruit, retain, and/or provide support to a faculty person specializing in interfacial & colloid science. This position may teach other courses in the Department of Chemical Engineering as determined by the chair. 


Chemical Engineering Discretionary Fund

The Chemical Engineering Discretionary Fund is an important resource for the department chair. Gifts to this fund are free from restriction, and provide essential support for ongoing work and programs. The chair disburses these funds throughout the department to meet emerging needs and opportunities as they arise.


Chemical Engineering Scholarship Fund

The success of the Department of Chemical Engineering in attracting the best and brightest undergraduate students depends on its ability to guarantee worthy students access to the department. Gifts to the Chemical Engineering Scholarship Fund enable the department to keep its doors open to best and brightest students regardless of their financial circumstances.


Chemical Engineering Faculty Support Fund

Faculty research in chemical engineering is a dynamic enterprise and this fund provides a much-needed tool to ensure that our faculty stays ahead of the curve. Gifts to this fund allow the department chair to respond to emerging priorities in faculty research but may be directed towards a particular faculty member's research group.
