The Committee on Corporation Associates is piloting a new funding program for ACS Local Sections to promote industry focused events at the local section level.
Corporation Associates is soliciting grant proposals from ACS Local Sections for industry-related events next year. Events can range from job fairs with local chemical employers, resume writing workshops, networking receptions, hosted panel discussions with industry leaders and other similar forums to benefit those local section members employed in industry.
Upon review of a well detailed event, Corporation Associates will fund local sections up to $1,000 to help subsidize the costs associated with producing and hosting these events.
Please note that the deadline for these Local Section grants is December 12, 2011.
