The ACS Women Chemists Committee (WCC) and Eli Lilly and Company sponsor a program to provide funding for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral female chemists to travel to meetings to present the results of their research.  Through this program, WCC and Eli Lilly and Company hope to increase participation of women in the chemical sciences.


Awards are made on the basis of scientific merit and financial need.  Funds may be applied only for registration, travel, and accommodations.  To view eligibility requirements for the award, please go to the ACS website.
