Iota Sigma Pi Oustanding Young Women In Chemistry Award
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the IUPAC 2015 Distinguished Women in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering Awards. The purpose of the awards program, initiated as part of the 2011 International Year of Chemistry celebrations, is to acknowledge and promote the work of women chemists/chemical engineers worldwide. In 2011, 23 women were honored during a ceremony held at the IUPAC Congress in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on 2 August 2011. In 2013, 12 women received this recognition during the 2013 IUPAC Congress in Istanbul, Turkey. A similar award ceremony will take place during the 2015 IUPAC Congress in August 2015 in Busan, Korea.
Awardees will be selected based on excellence in basic or applied research, distinguished accomplishments in teaching or education, or demonstrated leadership or managerial excellence in the chemical sciences. The Awards Committee is particularly interested in nominees with a history of leadership and/or community service during their careers.
The details are posted at http://www.iupac.org/news/news-detail/article/iupac-2015-distinguished-women-in-chemistry-or-chemical-engineering.html. The deadline is Feb 15, 2015.
The Association for Women in Science also has an up-to-date funding page.
Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS) is a summer research internship that is dedicated to building a diverse scientific community for the future.
