The ACS Division of Environmental Chemistry (ACS ENVR) has created a program with up to two $500 ACS ENVR Graduate Service Fellowships to be awarded annually. The service fellows will be invited to help the executive board for up to 12 months, and are intended to get graduate students involved in the ENVR division. The fellow must be planning to attend an ACS National meeting, where they can assist the program chair in helping the meeting go smoothly. Other tasks may include aid in compiling updated lists of the Environmental Chemistry Programs and Curricula available nationally, compiling lists of grant opportunities, etc. These fellowships are intended to help build a graduate students’ network and introduce them to current research of our field.

Students who are interested should send their CV/Resume along with a short letter of recommendation between Sept 1st and Nov 30th, in a single file (pdf or zip) with filename as “LastnameFirstnameMMYY” where MMYY is your expected graduation date (month and year).  Please send materials  to Lauren Weinrich at Lauren.Weinrich@amwater.com with the email  subject: ENVR Graduate Service Fellowship

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Applicants must be U.S. Citizens or otherwise authorized to receive taxable income for work. This is a requirement for tax purposes, since the money is not for educational expenses (unfortunately, many student visas are not compatible with this requirement).
  • Applicants must already have plans and financial support to attend either the Spring or Fall ACS National meeting, so that they can assist the program chair on-site. Travel support and registration are not provided as part of the program.
  • Applicants expected graduation date must be later than November of the coming year, so that they will still be a graduate student for the year during which they are applying for.
