Chemistry Centenary Appeal
The School of Chemistry at the University of Leicester welcomed its first students in 1925. With the centenary of this momentous event approaching, we are launching an appeal to support our chemistry students as they transition to become innovative professional scientists.
Helping us continue our mission
The School of Chemistry has a proven track record of research excellence; never standing still, pursuing the unknown and confronting the impossible. Across the wider University, we have always been committed to widening participation and offering the best opportunities for students from all walks of life to join our ambitious community. Your support will help us to continue this mission into our second century.
Chemistry is all about positive change, and we’d love you to help us to deliver a programme of valuable opportunities for our talented rising stars.
