Are you a student looking to be recognized for your efforts in green chemistry research? If so, there are two awards administered by the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® to look into!

 

The ACS GCI Joseph Breen Memorial Fellowship Award sponsors young, international green chemistry scholars to participate in an international green chemistry technical meeting, conference or training program. The student is awarded up to $2,000, based on estimated travel fees. This "young" scholar is defined as undergraduate students, graduate students, post doctoral fellows, and above, but below the level of assistant professor and within the first seven years of a professional career. Applicants residing within the U.S. or abroad are eligible for this award. The applicant must demonstrate research or educational interest in green chemistry.14116-60.jpg

 

The Kenneth G. Hancock Memorial Award provides national recognition for outstanding student contributions to furthering the goals of green chemistry through research and/or studies. This includes but is not limited to the research, development, and implementation of fundamental and innovative chemical technologies that incorporate the principles of green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture, and use, and that have the potential to be utilized in achieving national pollution prevention goals.The recipient of the award receives $1000, plus travel and registration to the Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference held in the Washington, D.C. area July, 2015.

 

The deadline for both awards is February 2, 2015.
