ACS Bridge Travel Award

Posted by: / January 8, 2020

The American Chemical Society is pleased to announce an underrepresented minority (URM) student travel award to defray travel and/or registration costs to either the National ACS Spring meeting or the annual meeting of the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) in the fall. The goal of this travel award is to increase the number of URM students that gain access to doctoral programs in the chemical sciences.

The award is open to students who are undergraduate students interested in the chemical sciences and are from groups traditionally underrepresented in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Namely, the underrepresented minorities include African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans. The award is not intended for graduate students or postdoctoral scholars. There will be a maximum of 15 awards available for each ACS and NOBCCHE meetings. Each award will be for up to $2000 of eligible expenses based on the review materials. Eligible expenses include meeting registration, travel expenses, airfare, and lodging.
