Join us this summer!
The 2022 program will start on Monday May 23rd. Each participant receives a $6,000 stipend plus full room and board and a travel allowance, a total value of approximately $10,000.
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.
The application deadline has been extended to Friday March 18, 2022
In addition to the online application, please submit the following as a PDF file (max size 100kb):
- An essay (500 words or less) describing your career goals, post-graduation plans, and your motivation for pursuing chemistry research. You may use your essay to indicate specific projects in each “Research Interest Area” that you would be particularly excited about working on.
- Unofficial transcript (include the fall 2021 semester). These files must be submitted as PDF documents as the last step of submitting this application. The files must be ready for upload at the time of application.
You will also need two letters of recommendation sent directly by your references. Your faculty references will be notified by email of your request for letters of recommendation. Be sure to enter accurate e-mail addresses for your references.
