Friedrich Grein Prize in Chemistry


A prize of at least $100 is awarded to a graduating student from the Bachelor of Science degree program (Chemistry or Medicinal Chemistry) with the highest standing. The prize is awarded on the recommendation of the Department of Chemistry. The number of awards and their value will be decided upon each year at the discretion of the department. This prize has been established by faculty members of the Department of Chemistry in honour of Professor Emeritus Friedrich (Fritz) Grein, whose distinguished career at the University began with his initial appointment in 1962 and continued as Professor Emeritus from 1995.  Dr. Grein’s research in theoretical chemistry has resulted in over 200 publications and earned international distinction, while his award-winning skill as an undergraduate and graduate teacher was widely respected.
