This annual fellowship was established in 1998 by Flexsys America L.P., the largest worldwide producer of chemicals for the rubber industry. Flexsys, whose regional headquarters for the Americas is located in Northeast Ohio, wishes to demonstrate its strong commitment to academic excellence at the Buchtel College of Arts and Sciences' Department of Chemistry.
This fund provides support to one or more graduate students in organic chemistry. The students will receive annual grants toward their educational expenses above and beyond tuition and fee expenses. The specific purpose of this fund is to attract highly qualified students into the Ph.D. program in organic chemistry. Selections will be made by chair of the Department of Chemistry and approved by the Flexsys management team, based on scholastic achievement, superior character, and leadership. The funded students will have the opportunity to participate in a summer internship at Flexsys with the prior approval of the Flexsys management team.
