ACS Scholars

The American Chemical Society Scholars Program celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2010. The program awards renewable scholarships of up to $5,000 per year to underrepresented minority students who want to enter chemistry or chemical engineering or related fields such as environmental science, toxicology, and chemical technology.


As part of the 15th anniversary celebration, C&EN is launching a series of profiles of current and former ACS Scholars.


The profiles will run in the last issue of each month.
