Virginia Ellis Franta Scholarship Application for Chemistry & Biochemistry/Molecular Biology Majors

The Virginia Ellis Franta Fund is supported by a generous donation by Virginia Ellis Franta to provide financial assistance to the Department of Chemistry, its students, and faculty. The purpose of this fund is to provide annual support for student and faculty research or to help with immediate financial needs as determined by the Chemistry Department. The Chemistry Department has decided to use a portion of the Virginia Ellis Franta Fund to assist students who need financial support to pay for educational expenses at Wittenberg University. Each funding request received is evaluated based on student merit and financial need. Scholarships are given as a single award.

Deadline for Applications

  • Fall Semester- Friday, October 9, 2020
