WCC/Eli Lilly Travel Award

 

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.

 

Applications may be submitted online; the deadline for submission of applications is Monday, September 15, 2014. The online application may be found here.

July Networking Social Hour

Thank you to all those who came out to the WCC and YCC co-sponsored Networking Social Hour on Friday, July 25th.  We had approximately 25 people join us at Leon's Lounge on McGowan Street to enjoy a leisurely evening with their fellow chemists. Watch for future announcements of networking opportunities on this website and in the monthly Greater Houston Section newsletter.
