Request a Grant Writer

Award of $5,000 to recognize a USA individual undergraduate chemistry faculty member for significant contributions in research. The award is intended for a candidate that performs research in an undergraduate setting, and has already gained recognition and contributed significantly to chemistry and the professional development of undergraduate students.

This award recognizes fundamental research that constitutes advances in science as evidenced by refereed publications with undergraduate coauthors in leading scientific research journals, external research grant support, and the subsequent professional development of students who have participated in the research program.

The award will be given for significant work over a long period of time rather than for a specific, limited project.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Nominators:

- Nominators are not required to be members of the Society.
- A nomination can only have one nominator and the recommendation letter is written by this person.
- Any individual, except a member of the award selection committee or an ACS Board member during their terms of service on the Board, may submit either one nomination or one support letter for each award. However, selection committee members may submit other nominations or support letters for awards in which they are not serving as a judge.

Nominees:

- The nominee's department may offer work leading to the master's degree but cannot have a doctoral program.
- A nominee must be a tenured faculty member of a predominantly undergraduate institution.
- Nominees are not required to be members of the Society. Unless the submission is for the Charles Lathrop Parsons Award or the Award for Volunteer Service to the ACS.
- The nominee’s accomplishments should be specific to the purpose of the award.
- In general, a recipient of a widely recognized scientific award is not eligible for an ACS national award unless the accomplishment cited as the basis for the nomination represents new or different work.
- An individual who has received an ACS National Award may be nominated for a different ACS award if (1) the nomination is for clearly different work from the previous award (the letter of recommendation for the award must address the differences between the work performed for the previous ACS award and that which is addressed in the current nomination) or (2) at least five years has elapsed since the previous ACS award was received. The “five-year” rule is waived for the preceptor(s) of the students who are eligible to receive the Nobel Laureate Signature Award for Graduate Education in Chemistry.

Posthumous awards will be made only when knowledge of the individual's death is received after the recipient has been announced. Nominations of individuals known to be deceased will not be accepted.

The award will be granted regardless of race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, presence of disabilities, and educational background.
