Petra and Baudilio Colón Award Fund

PhD student in chemistry lab.

PhD students conducting research in analytical chemistry can benefit from this fund.

The Petra and Baudilio Colón Award will provide a student with funds of up to $900 for travel to a national or international conference, where the student can present the research work performed at UB.

The award recognizes a deserving graduate student who is pursuing a PhD in the area of analytical chemistry, allowing them to share their research, while also taking advantage of valuable networking opportunities. The fund was established by Dr. Luis A. Colón and Mrs. Lorraine Anderson-Colón.

The Department of Chemistry offers baccalaureate and graduate-level degree programs in chemistry and medicinal chemistry, and also provides training in chemistry to a large number of students in the science, health professions and engineering disciplines, as well as other professional programs. Chemistry faculty are committed to advancing science through publications, creation of intellectual property, outreach activities, seminars and education of the scientific workforce.

At the College of Arts and Sciences, our students see opportunity around every corner. Our faculty have the expertise to overcome virtually any obstacle. Now, all we need is your support to help us turn our extraordinary potential into unparalleled achievement. We ask you to join us in creating a better, brighter future for the college and communities around the world. And we ask you, just as we ask ourselves and our students: What problem will you help solve today?
