Description: 

The American Chemical Society sponsors scholarship programs for qualified applicants who want to enter the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, or chemical engineering, and students seeking a two-year degree in chemical technology. The programs are designed to encourage African-American, Hispanic, and American Indian students to pursue undergraduate college degrees in the chemical sciences and chemical technology. The goal of these scholarship programs is to aid in building an awareness of the value and the rewards associated with careers in science and to assist students in acquiring the skills and credentials needed for success in these areas.

The scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit and financial need to high school seniors planning a science preparatory program of study, and college students who are currently freshmen, sophomores, or juniors who are committed to the study of chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering or other chemically related fields such as environmental science, materials science or toxicology and are interested in pursuing careers in one of these fields. Students interested in two-year chemical technology programs and careers in this field are also eligible. Students must have strong academic records and show an interest in and potential for careers in the chemical sciences. Students intending to pursue careers in medicine are not eligible for scholarship awards.
   

Benefits: 

The amount of each award depends upon the availability of funding, the number of scholarships awarded, and evidence of financial need. Award amounts are as follows: $2,500 for freshmen; $3,000 for sophomores; $5,000 for juniors and seniors. Some scholarships are renewable.
