The American Chemical Society is currently seeking applications from teachers interested in enhancing their high school chemistry class with the ACS-Hach High School Chemistry Classroom Grant.  Teachers can request up to $1,500 to support ideas that improve student learning and achievement within the classroom. Applications are due by April 1, 2014. Grant writing assistance and application details are available at www.acs.org/hachgrants.

The American Chemical Society (ACS) can help you pursue your dream of becoming a high school chemistry teacher with the ACS-Hach teacher scholarships: ACS-Hach Post-Baccalaureate Teacher scholarships and the ACS-Hach Second Career Teacher Scholarships. Both scholarship opportunities award recipients up to $6,000 for full-time study and up to $3,000 for part-time annually. Applications are due on April 1, 2014. Learn more about these opportunities at www.acs.org/hachscholarships.

Do you know someone who is an outreach super-star? A fellow chemist who brings chemistry to life for public audiences, whether they be students, scouts, community groups, or others? Or maybe someone who gets the word out through radio, newspaper columns, videos or television appearances? Nominations are open for the Helen M. Free Award for Public Outreach, which recognizes an ACS member who improves public recognition and appreciation for the role of chemistry in our lives.  $1000 prize.  Apply online by May 15, 2014.

Nominations are now open for the 2014 class of ACS Fellows; the deadline for nominations is April 1, 2014. The ACS Fellows Program recognizes ACS members for excellence and leadership in both of two areas: (1) science, the profession, education, and/or management, and (2) volunteer service in the ACS community. Nominations are being solicited from ACS National Committees, Local Sections, and Divisions, as well as from individual members. Visit www.acs.org/fellows for program guidelines and nomination information.
