 TODAY's ChemTAG Event

Feb 26, 2017 – Montclair State Open House re: MS Chemistry Scholarship

Montclair State Univ

OPEN-NJ Scholarship Program

Dear NJ-ACS members:

I want to let Northern NJ young chemists know about a scholarship we have at Montclair State University for M.S. study in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Biochemistry.

The program is called OPEN-NJ.   For details, please visit www.montclair.edu/csam/open-nj and view this flyer.

Basically the scholarship pays for most of a student’s tuition for a 2 year M.S. program at MSU (Chemistry, Biochemsitry, Pharmaceutical Biochemistry). Classes are at night starting at 5:30 pm or later Monday–Thursday.

On Sunday, February 26th, there will be a graduate open house at MSU. Students can meet with me and other chemistry faculty to discuss the program, and Open House attendees who apply to a program will receive a $60 application fee waiver.

Here is the link to register for the open house: register

Thanks,
