Betty and Donald Baumann Family Scholarship












This scholarship is awarded to two chemistry majors per year for the purpose of conducting research at Creighton University. Donald Baumann taught chemistry at Creighton from 1943-46 and 1951-80, retiring with the rank of Professor Emeritus. His wife, Betty, was Treasurer-Manager of the Creighton Federal Credit Union from 1967 until 1980. The Baumann family established this fund in 1986 to promote undergraduate research in chemistry at Creighton University. The fund provides for two $1,000 scholarships each year. The intent of the scholarship is to support research ideas originated by the undergraduate applicants. This research would be done under the guidance of a chemistry professor. Applicants who wish to participate in an ongoing research program of a chemistry professor may also apply.

Students eligible to register for Directed Independent Research (Chm 497) may apply for the scholarship by completing an application form and returning it to Dr. Bruce Mattson prior to the deadline of October 31st of each year.

The Baumann Family Scholarship was originally a $500 scholarship. As the fund grew, the award was increased to $1,000 in 1990. In 1998, the fund was of sufficient size that we were able to offer two $1,000 scholarships
