Eligibility

Undergraduates attending any U.S. university who are majoring in chemistry or a closely related field, and who are considering a career--and perhaps graduate study--in chemistry, are encouraged to apply.  Most applicants will be completing their junior year, but well-prepared sophomores and freshmen should also apply. The program is not designed for students who will have graduated.  We especially encourage applications from women and students from underrepresented groups.

A good academic record, especially in chemistry courses, will strengthen an application, but evidence of interest in chemical research is a major consideration.
