ACS Award for Encouraging Underrepresented and Economically Disadvantaged Students into Careers in the Chemical Sciences
The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation established the Award for Encouraging Underrepresented and Economically Disadvantaged Students into Careers in the Chemical Sciences in 1993 to recognize significant accomplishments by individuals in stimulating students, underrepresented in the profession, to elect careers in the chemical sciences and engineering. The award consists of $5,000 and a certificate. A grant of $10,000 is also made to an eligible non-profit institution, designated by the recipient, to strengthen its activities in meeting the objectives of the award. Nominees for the award may come from any professional setting: academia, industry, government, or other independent facility.
