Travel awards

The Division of Medicinal Chemistry makes available a limited number of grants of $2000 annually to aid young chemists in presenting papers at the ACS National Meetings. Applicants must be ACS MEDI Division regular or student members (click here to join), and not have previously received a travel award.

Application deadlines are the same as the abstract deadline for each meeting. In order of priority, the following individuals will be considered for awards: Graduate Student, Postdoctoral Fellow, individual with less than five years post-Ph.D. experience. The scientific merit of the paper to be presented will also be considered. Travel grants are limited to US-based applicants.

Awardees will be notified in sufficient time so that they can pre-register for the meeting. All travel grant recipients are required to acknowledge the Division in a slide or on their poster as a condition of accepting the award. Awards are given at the Division business meeting, which is held at each national meeting immediately before the Sunday night poster session and mixer.

Application Procedure: Applicants should send their MAPS Abstract Number, an extended abstract (max 2 pages) and a brief CV (max 2 pages) and a letter of support from your research advisor as a single pdf to the division secretary: by the normal abstract deadline.
