Congratulations to graduate student Seyedeh Fatemeh Rahnemaye Rahsepar who has been awarded the Don E. Irish Graduate Award. This award valued at up to $2,000 is awarded annually to full-time graduate students completing their graduate degree in the Department of Chemistry in the Faculty of Science on the basis of demonstrated excellence. This fund is made possible by a donation from Hilda Buckingham Irish, sister-in-law to the late Don Irish (former chair of the Department of Chemistry).
