ACS Student Chapter Grants

I am pleased to inform you that the application period for the spring-cycle of ACS student chapter grants is now open! There are a limited number of awards available so be sure your chapter puts together a complete and compelling proposal by the application deadline on April 6, 2018. The grant programs listed below are available for domestic chapters (US & PR) only.

 National Meeting Travel Grant
Your chapter can receive up to $300 for travel assistance to the ACS National Meeting in Boston, MA this fall. If you have not done so already, be sure to submit your abstract via MAPS by March 26, 2018. We will consider only one application per chapter. To be eligible, your chapter must have at least one abstract accepted into an oral session or one of the Undergraduate or Successful Student Chapter Poster sessions. Applications will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. There are 36 available awards.

 Community Interaction Grant
Working with socioeconomically disenfranchised K-12 students is not only rewarding for the undergrad, but has an incredible impact on the students receiving the outreach. That is why we are continuing to support ACS student chapters with a $500 grant to promote interaction between student chapters and these at-risk communities.

 New Activities Grant
What does a tour of the National Ice Core Lab have in common with making maple syrup? Both are examples of applications funded by the New Activities Grant! Chapters can receive up to $500 to try a new project or program.

 Undergraduate Research Symposia Grant (Pilot Program)
I am excited to announce ACS’ newest addition to our student chapter grant line-up. We will be piloting the URSG for chapters seeking to host research symposia that is a majority undergraduate between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019. Three $1000 grants are available to chapters through this program. Chapters may establish partnerships with local sections, technical divisions, and/or other universities; however, the chapter may not partner with a regional meeting for this grant program.
