The PMSE Graduate Student Travel Award is given to provide partial travel support to women and/or under-represented (African American, Hispanic, or Native American) graduate students to attend and present their research at ACS national meetings.
Four awards will be made yearly, two for each of the National ACS Meetings. Each awardee will receive a $500 award to be applied to costs of her/his travel to the meeting. Awardees will be acknowledged at the PMSE/POLY Awards Ceremony at the National ACS Meeting.
Travel grants are funded through generous donations which sustain the program awards.
Female and/or under-represented (African American, Hispanic, or Native American) graduate students performing research in fields related to polymer science and engineering who are US citizens or permanent residents are eligible. Nominees should be full-time graduate students at the time of application with a submission of an abstract (as presenter) to a PMSE symposium at a National ACS Meeting.
Eligible students are required to submit an online application (In new window) by the designated deadline. Applications will be reviewed by the PMSE Graduate Student Travel Award committee. For the Spring 2020 ACS meeting in Philadelphia, the deadline is February 28, 2020.
For ACS Spring meetings, please check back in January and February for updated application and deadline dates. For ACS Fall meetings, please check back in June and July for updated application and deadline dates. Dates vary based on the timing for the conference.
