Applications accepted until March for scholarships for minority students in chemical sciences 

WASHINGTON, Feb. 19, 2019 — The American Chemical Society (ACS) Scholars Program is offering renewable scholarships of $1,000 to $5,000 per year for African-American, Hispanic and Native American 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, materials science, toxicology, biochemistry, chemical engineering and chemical technology.

In addition to providing financial support, the ACS Scholars Program 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.

Scholarship applications will be accepted online at the ACS Scholars Program website www.acs.org/scholars through March 1, 2019, for the academic year 2019-20. Additional information is available by calling 1-800-227-5558, extension 6250, or by emailing scholars@acs.org.

The Scholars program, now in its 24th year, aims to build awareness of the value and rewards associated with careers in chemistry and to help students acquire the skills and credentials needed for success. Nearly 1,700 ACS Scholars have graduated with a bachelor's degree in the chemical sciences, and a substantial number have gone on to graduate school and/or entered the workforce in their field.
