Request a Grant Writer

Award of $5,000 to a USA, Canada, or International individual to recognize significant contributions to experimental research in the field of chemistry. The nominee’s contributions will have enhanced understanding of chemical pedagogy and fostered improved learning and teaching of chemistry. The award will recognize research contributions involving a significant body of work rather than a single project or contribution.

The award honors qualitative, quantitative, experimental research or case study research that investigates some aspect of the teaching and learning of chemistry. The research contributions may include the testing of research hypotheses, basing experiments on existing theories, incorporating what is known in the literature into the research, using an experimental design or recognized data-collection procedure, analyzing quantitative or qualitative data, and drawing valid conclusions from the observations and data. Experimental research should include one or more recognized techniques and be designed as control-group designs with random assignments of subjects or the use of in-tact class sections; factorial designs, bi-variate or multivariate correlation studies, etc. The research must show independence of thought and originality.

Evidence of outstanding research may include, but is not limited to dissemination of the results of the research via appropriate peer-reviewed science education, chemical education, or science journals; chapters in science education, chemical education, or science books; invited talks at academic institutions; and/or invited talks, posters, workshops, and participation in panel discussions at professional meetings. Support of the research through local, regional or national grants and/or the adoption, adaptation, or citation of aspects of the work by other researchers, scholars, and/or practitioners serves as evidence of the validity, applicability and acceptability of the research.
