The June 30 deadline to apply for a Local Section Innovative Project Grant (IPG) is fast approaching! Projects put forth in the Local Section IPG Program should be new to the local section; designed to increase member involvement, improve services to members, and increase the public's understanding of chemistry. The maximum funding that a local section can receive is $3,000. It is a requirement that local sections submit final reports for any previously funded IPGs in order for new proposals to be considered. Once any outstanding final reports are received, your local section can apply for an IPG by emailing a completed application form, along with relevant letters of support, to by June 30, 2013. Because this day falls on a Sunday, applications submitted on Monday, July 1 will be honored.

The International Center will be celebrating the second session of its free webinar series on June 27, 2013, featuring speakers from the Fulbright Scholar Programs Council for International Exchange of Scholars to talk about the organization, information on long-term and short-term Fulbright grants available in the STEM fields for U.S. Scholars, opportunities for Visiting Scholars to the U.S., and an overview of other Fulbright Programs. Register now!
