The Microbiology Development Fund is used to support numerous department activities, awards, seminars and student recruitment efforts. It sponsors two of our annual undergraduate scholarships; the Alumni Achievement Award, given to an outstanding microbiology student who demonstrates financial need and the Student Leadership Award, given to the graduating senior who has displayed a long-term commitment to microbiology student activities. In addition, the Microbiology Development Fund provides monetary awards for outstanding Science Fair projects in microbiology. Without help from you and other generous donors, we could not continue to support these programs and scholarships.
