The ACS Green Chemistry Institute® manages several awards that can be used to travel to the GC&E Conference.

Sustainability in Organic Chemistry: Special Student/Postdoc Session ($1,200)

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.
