Welcome to the Department of Chemistry at the University of West Florida! Chemistry courses for majors at UWF are typically small, allowing our instructors to pay attention to individual students. Nevertheless, our laboratories are inordinately well-equipped with modern instrumentation. We pride ourselves on giving students hands-on training with state-of-the-art instrumentation, so our graduates are extremely well-prepared for the job market and professional or graduate school.
In 2016, UWF received an S-STEM grant from the National Science Foundation for $949,888 to support 28 academically talented, financially disadvantaged students. A component of this program will pilot a four-year, eight semester STEM for Life Seminar Series for 28 S-STEM Scholars and 32 CSE Scholars. In that same year, UWF received funding from the National Science Foundation to create a Geo Scholars program supporting 5 students/year in research.
