Chemical Computing Group Grad Student Awards

Up to Two $1,150 Chemical Computing Group Research Excellence Student Travel Award Stipends Available for the ACS National Meeting

CCG Research Excellence student travel award stipends are available for the Fall 2017 ACS National Meeting in Washington, DC. The CCG Research Excellence Awards in Medicinal Chemistry have been created to stimulate graduate student participation in ACS MEDI Division activities (symposia and poster sessions) at ACS National Meetings. Those eligible for a CCG Excellence Award are graduate students in good standing who present work within the MEDI program, either in oral or poster format, that include a computational chemistry component. Winners receive $1,150 to offset their travel expenses, as well as a copy of CCG's MOE (Molecular Operating Environment) software with a one-year license. They are also honored during a ceremony at the MEDI Division's Sunday evening Poster Session.

Up to 2 awardees will be chosen on the basis of the quality and significance of the research to be presented. Awardees must be graduate students in good academic standing, attending a recognized University within the Americas (North, South and Central). Awards will be given only to those individuals making presentations, not co-authors. There is a limit of one CCG award application per research lab (PI) per calendar year. Previous winners are not eligible.

Procedure:  
(1)  Submit your abstract through the ACS MAPS system (maps.acs.org), for presentation in the MEDI Division, by the normal abstract deadline.
(2) send your MAPS abstract number, an extended abstract (up to 2 pages), CV (up to 2 pages), and a letter of support from your research advisor to Eric Walters, Secretary, at secretary@acsmedchem.org, by the normal abstract deadline.
