ACS Scholars Program

ACS Scholars Program
ACS Scholars Program is sponsored by the American Chemical Society (ACS), offering scholarships to students pursuing careers in chemical sciences or chemical technology who are of African American, Hispanic, or American Indian descent.

Students may apply when they are high school seniors, or already in college up to their junior year. They must be full-time students with a grade point average of 3.0 or above in chemistry or science in order to be eligible and plan to attend an accredited four-year college or university.

Applicants must demonstrate financial need and be U.S. citizens. Judging will be based not only on financial need and academic performance but also on the student's record of leadership activities and community service. The scholarship awards are renewable.

The American Chemical Society was founded in New York in 1876 by 35 chemists. They have grown into a membership base of 164,000 members who help support the profession of chemists and chemical engineers around the world. In addition to scholarships to support the education of tomorrow's chemists, ACS publishes chemical journals and issues grants for research in the field of chemistry.

In 1994, ACS established the ACS Scholars Program. Scholarships are awarded to encourage more African American, Hispanic and American Indian students to enter the field of chemical sciences.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MARCH of each year, and the award amount is usually $5,000.
