Chemistry Authors’ Scholarship
Together, they authored Experimental Organic Chemistry: A Miniscale and Microscale Approach, a popular textbook that has been adopted by universities throughout the U.S. and elsewhere. To help support students in their departments, they contributed their royalties from local sales of this textbook to the endowment. They hope this encourages other such donations.
“We strongly believe that publication royalties from the sales of textbooks written by UT faculty and adopted for courses at the University should be returned to benefit the students,” say Drs. Gilbert and Martin. “Even modest scholarship support can help students focus on their academic pursuits in classrooms and labs.”
Funds distributed from the endowment will be used to provide support to undergraduate students in the Department of Chemistry.
