Van Dyke Research Award

Francis C. Van Dyke was appointed Professor of Analytical Chemistry at Queens (later Rutgers) College in 1871. Over a long career here, he taught physics, botany, and physiology, as well as chemistry, and served as Dean of the College from 1901-1913. The Van Dyke endowment was set up with funds from a bequest by Prof. Van Dyke's niece.

The Van Dyke Award recognizes full-time graduate students that show excellence in their Ph.D. research.

The award requires nomination by the faculty. Nominations will be submitted each fall semester to the Vice Chair of the Graduate Student Program. Student recipients will be recognized during our annual Graduate Student Award Ceremony.
