Application fee waiver for UChicago graduate program

I am writing to ask for your help in identifying promising undergraduate candidates for our graduate program in chemistry at the University of Chicago. As you may know, our department has recently undergone a substantial expansion with recent hires including Yamuna Krishnan, Ray Moellering, Suri Vaikuntanathan, Andrei Tokmakoff, Wenbin Lin, John Anderson, Scott Snyder, and Timothy Berkelbach (who will start in 2016). This growth has prompted us to similarly expand our graduate recruitment efforts.

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Chicago values diversity within the department and broader university community, which has from its founding been committed to equal opportunity for women and minority scholars (; Furthermore, the department enjoys close ties with the James Franck Institute (materials), the Institute for Biophysical Dynamics (structural, cellular, and chemical biology), the Computation Institute, Argonne National Lab, and the new Institute for Molecular Engineering. The multitude of affiliated institutes and collegial atmosphere at the University fosters a unique character of interdisciplinary science.

If you know of any scholars who might thrive here, I would greatly appreciate you letting them know about current opportunities at Chicago. I appreciate that many application fees for graduate school are in excess of $75, making more applications expensive. In recognition of this cost, and the excellence of Case Western’s students, we would like to offer waivers for this application fee at the University of Chicago. Exceptional candidates can use the code BCD1 upon application to completely waive this fee.

Thank you in advance for your help. If you have any questions about the Department of Chemistry or about our graduate program, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Feel free to forward this to any faculty mentoring undergraduate students who might be interested.
