Eastman Chemical Student Award in Applied Polymer Science

2014 Eastman Chemical Student Award


Applied Polymer Science

Applications are invited for the 2014 Eastman Chemical Student Award in Applied Polymer Science sponsored by the Polymer Education Committee of the ACS Divisions of Polymeric Materials:  Science and Engineering and Polymer Chemistry.

Graduate students, either currently in graduate school, or not more than one year beyond graduation, are invited to submit a research paper for presentation at the 2014 Fall ACS Meeting in San Francisco, CA.  The paper should conform to the preprint format of the PMSE Division, and be commensurate with the regulations and customs of papers presented at PMSE/ACS programs.

Up to six finalists will be selected based on the scientific merit of the submitted papers.  Out-of-pocket expenses up to $750 will be available to each finalist to attend the ACS meeting and present his/her paper in the Eastman Chemical Student Award Symposium within the PMSE program.  The paper must be presented by the student, not by the co-author/thesis advisor.  The awardee will be chosen by an anonymous evaluation committee that will audit the presentations.

The Award, consisting of $1600 and a plaque, will be presented at the PMSE Division Awards Reception at the following Spring meeting.  The awardee will also be reimbursed for up to $750 out-of-pocket expenses to attend the ACS meeting at the following Spring.  All finalists will receive a one-year complimentary membership in the PMSE Division.

Instructions regarding application procedures are available from:

John W. Gilmer

Chair, Eastman Chemical Student Award Committee


NOTEApplications  and preprints for the 2014 Award must be submitted via email (jwgilmer@king.edu)  by Feb 28, 2014.
