Jeanne Lagowski Scholarship

Established in 1994 by the Lagowskis. The annual awardee(s) are selected by the department.

Both of them, now emeritus faculty at UT, are well-recognized educators who have spent their professional careers at Texas. Jeanne was most active in developing strong programs in premedical fields while Joe has long had a major research program at Texas. Joe is internationally known for his many efforts in chemical education; for 17 years he was editor of the Journal of Chemical Education.
