Elon Huntington Hooker Fellowship

The Elon Huntington Hooker Fellowship is a one-year dissertation fellowship for students from various fields of science whose work is primarily and clearly concerned with chemistry. The fellowships are funded by a gift from Mrs. Hooker in memory of Mr. Elon Huntington Hooker, a graduate and, for many years, a Trustee of the University. Mr. Hooker was founder of the Hooker Chemical Company and a graduate of the University of Rochester.

Appropriate candidates are full-time students who have passed their qualifying exams and are engaged in full-time research toward the dissertation.
