The Robert Bau Endowed Graduate Fellowship

It has been approximately one year since the passing of distinguished professor Bob Bau. To help celebrate his life and honor his extraordinary mentorship by linking him to new generations of young chemists, we are creating the Robert Bau Endowed Graduate Fellowship at USC. In order to establish this important fund, we need to raise $750,000 over the next five years. A $25,000 dollar, 5-year commitment has already been made to start the endowment fund.

If you would like to join us in recognizing Bob’s many important contributions to academia and scientific research,
please send your tax deductible donation to

USC College Advancement,
444 S. Flower Street, #4100,
Los Angeles 90071

Attention: Susan Redfield. Please indicate “Bau Endowment” in your correspondence or in the memo line.

Donations of all sizes are gladly accepted, from single checks to multi-year commitments for larger contributions.
Your gift will be recognized and will also make you eligible for USC and College benefits.

We wish you a successful 2010 and look forward to hearing from you.
