Grote Scholars announced

The Chemistry Department is proud to announce the new 2005-06 Grote Scholars, all from Tennessee:

Bottom row, l-r: Rishi Naik, Daniel Chatham, Aaron Henry. Upper row: Amanda Finley, Lauren DeLoach, Lindsey Miller, Heather Qualls, Eric Tiner, Skye Webb, Cassie Brooks, Marie Loizeaux and Iliza Myers.

The Grote Chemistry Scholarship Program awards are renewable over a four-year period and can be added to other University scholarships. Grote Chemistry Scholarships are named in honor of Dr. Irvine W. Grote, who served as head of the UTC chemistry department from 1941 to 1964. Previous Grote Scholars have graduated with distinction and gone on to success in chemical graduate schools, medical schools, law school, and the chemical industry.

Grote Chemistry Scholarship eligibility is based upon:

  • completion of a course in high school chemistry with an A or B
  • a high school grade point average of 3.5 or above
  • a composite score of 26 or above on the enhanced ACT exam (or SAT equivalent)
  • the student declaring chemistry as a major at UTC.

Eligible majors include all BS and BA Chemistry degrees (including biochemistry and pre-medicine and pre-dental).

Selection of the Grote Chemistry Scholarship recipients is based on academic performance, interest in chemistry, and potential for continued outstanding achievement.

Please email Gretchen Potts or call (423) 425-5296 or (423) 425-4278 for more information.
