The Yergey Fund for Muhlenberg College

James and Naomi Yergey established this temporary, donor designated fund in 2014 to provide grants to their alma mater, Muhlenberg College, in support of the Yergey Family Endowed Scholarship in Chemistry. 

Muhlenberg College in Allentown was established in 1848.  The Chemistry Department prides itself on being “a close-knit community of students, faculty and staff who share the common goal of developing (and becoming) the next generation of chemists who will help tackle the scientific challenges ahead including: energy, clean water, new materials, and nanotechnology.  The Department is characterized by excellent teachers at all levels of instruction; engaging research opportunities as early as your freshman year; graduates who are highly sought after by employers, graduate and professional schools; and students who work hard and cooperatively.”
