Riemen Prize

The Mark W. Riemen Summer Research Prize was established by family, classmates, and colleagues in memory of Mark W. Riemen (CAS ’75), a distinguished research scientist.

The award supports an undergraduate summer research project in the amount of $4,400 for salary and a $500 Supplies Award. The competition is open to Chemistry and Biology majors in alternate years and to Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (BMB) majors every year. In the summer of 2018, undergraduates majoring in Chemistry or BMB will be invited to submit a research proposal, in consultation with a faculty mentor, to the UROP Office.
