The ACS Green Chemistry Institute® manages several awards that can be used to travel to the GC&E Conference.
The development of new synthetic methodologies and strategies has been the cornerstone upon which sustainable industrial processes are built. The pure research advances arising from academia fuel the world’s industrial innovation, while also training the scientific leaders of tomorrow. This special session highlights the research of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars across the broader, global organic chemistry community which has the potential to impact sustainable industrial chemistry. Students accepted to present in this symposium will be offered $1200 travel grants from the ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable to assist in their in-person conference attendance.
Abstract Deadline: February 13, 2023.
The Nina McClelland Memorial Award is open to postdoctoral chemists who are engaged in green chemistry research. Two $2,000 awards will be provided each year and awardees must present their research during the Conference.
The Heh-Won Chang Fellowship provides financial support to full-time graduate students conducting research in green chemistry. Students must present their research at the G&CE Conference. Funds may be used for any purpose, including conference travel, professional development and living expenses, while the recipient is in graduate school. All full-time graduate students across the globe who are currently conducting research in green chemistry and have at least one full year of study remaining in their graduate program are eligible.
Reimburses travel expenses up to $2,000 for attendance in a green chemistry technical meeting, conference or training program. Undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and young professionals, both international and domestic, are eligible.
Award for outstanding contributions to green chemistry research & education. The award is announced at GC&E and awardees should present at the conference. Travel and registration to GC&E is reimbursable up to $1,000. The award is open to undergraduate and graduate students, regardless of citizenship or country of study.
Reimburses travel expenses up to $2,000 for U.S. high school, undergraduate and graduate students to attend an American Chemical Society (ACS) technical meeting, conference or training program.
