In addition to the two programs developed in 2020 (Campaign to Support the ACS Scholars Program and Great Connections), the Senior Chemists Committee (SCC) has allocated funding for new activities to advance ACS DEIR goals. The project must be led by a senior ACS member (i.e., over 50 years in age) and must be submitted by a technical division, international chapter, or any official ACS entity other than a local section. A limited number of proposals (up to $500) will be funded. Grants will be awarded following review by the SCC Awards Subcommittee. All applications must be submitted by Friday, October 29, 2021.
The proposal should address:
Impact of the project on diversity, equity, inclusion and/or respect;
Estimated potential magnitude of the impact on systemic racism;
Level of engagement by senior ACS members and/or other seniors; and
Current and potential support from partners, including the possibility of long-term continuation of the proposed activity
A report on the project must be submitted within 30 days of the event, or at the start of the activity. The proposed event or activity can be scheduled in 2021 or 2022. If you have any questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
