Scholarships for Minority Students in the Chemical Sciences
Last Updated by
The American Chemical Society (ACS) Scholars program is offering renewable scholarships of $1,000 to $5,000 per year for African American, Hispanic and American Indian students entering chemistry-related fields. Qualified students may be studying at community colleges or four-year institutions. Graduating high school seniors and college freshmen, sophomores and juniors may apply.
Eligible majors include— but are not limited to— chemistry, toxicology, biochemistry, chemical engineering and chemical technology.
In addition to providing financial support, this program ACS Scholars pairs students with academic and professional mentors to give them the opportunity to learn from those who have experienced similar challenges related to ethnicity. These relationships can span entire careers.
Applications will be accepted from November 1, 2015, through March 1, 2016, for the academic year 2016-2017. Applications will be accepted online on the ACS Scholars Program website www.acs.org/scholars.
