Travel Grant Opportunity For Undergraduates from Underrepresented Groups
We are pleased to announce a special program to bring undergraduate
chemistry students from underrepresented minorities to physical chemistry
symposia at national ACS meetings. The title of this program, "Awards to
Undergraduates from Underrepresented Minorities to Present PHYS Posters at
ACS National Meetings," conveys its purpose. We have funds to cover the
registration fee and travel/subsistence expenses (up to $600 per
undergraduate student) for the meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana (8-12
September 2013) or Dallas Texas (16-20 March 2014). Current total funding
allows us to make six awards for each of these meetings. The students will
meet the officers of the PHYS Division, attend technical symposia, and
present their research at the Division poster session.
The application should contain a statement from the student about her/his interest in attending a national ACS meeting, an indication of the research that would be presented at the PHYS poster session on Wednesday evening, and a letter of recommendation from two faculty members or senior supervisors.
Please submit materials electronically by June 1st, 2013 for the Indianapolis meeting to Joel M. Bowman, Chair-Elect of the PHYS Division.
