The American Chemical Society (ACS) Has Just Established a New Award Recognizing Underrepresented Minorities in Chemistry for Excellence in Research & Development

 

ACS is looking to promote the participation of under-represented minorities in chemistry by identifying and recognizing a distinguished minority chemist who has made significant contributions to chemical research.

The award will consist of:

 

•    A $2,000 award and travel expenses to an ACS meeting where the awardee will give a presentation on their research.

 

•    An opportunity to give a talk at two minority-serving institutions to discuss their work and visit with students, faculty, and administrators to assist outreach efforts to interest students in careers in chemistry.

 

So caucus with your colleagues and then submit the following to diversity@acs.org:

 

1.    A brief explanation of why the nominee should be considered for the award, specifically identifying his/her contribution to chemical research and its significance.

 

2.    A list of publications or other documentation demonstrating the impact of the research.

 

3.    A biographical sketch of the nominee.

 

4.    Three letters of support from scientific colleagues familiar 4. with the nominee’s work.

 

The deadline for submitting nominations for this inaugural award is June 30, 2011 (extended from its original deadline of June 15).
