The Herschel and Caryl Roman Undergraduate Science Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to deserving undergraduates at the University of Washington who have an interest in genetics research. The Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Dr. Herschel Lewis Roman, who joined the UW faculty in 1942 and founded the Department of Genetics (now known as the Department of Genome Sciences) in 1959. By the time of his retirement in 1980, he had received international recognition for his work in chromosomal behavior and genetic recombination. With his passing in 1989, his family and friends proposed this scholarship in his honor.
