The Jean Dreyfus Lecturer will give at least two public presentations: one geared toward a technical audience and the other accessible to and promoted to the wider community. The invited lecturer will spend at least two days on campus and interact substantially with Union undergraduates and faculty during the visit. Additionally, the award will provide two undergraduate chemistry or biochemistry students with stipends to support their summer research, as well as additional funds to defray costs associated with their work and/or scientific advancement, including travel to scientific meetings.
