Summer job opening at Promerus

This would be a great internship opportunity for a student finishing their junior year or a good interim position for a May graduate still looking for a job or planning to attend graduate school in the fall.

DOW-MIT ACCESS 2014 Program

We are writing to ask for your help in spreading the word about an exciting program hosted by the Departments of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at MIT. The DOW-MIT ACCESS Program is a weekend-long symposium aimed to expose underrepresented minority students to the benefits of a graduate education in the aforementioned research areas. This 6th annual event, taking place on MIT’s campus October 24th and October 25th, is an interactive and informative symposium that has proven to have a lasting impact on its past participants.

Over half of our ACCESS alumni are now enrolled in graduate programs across the country. We hope you will encourage your students to apply to this program as we continue to work toward increasing the number of under-represented minorities in the fields of chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science.

Applications for the ACCESS Fall 2014 session are due July 15, 2014. All travel expenses, meals and hotel accommodations for students selected to participate in the ACCESS program will be paid by us. Participation neither obligates the student to apply for graduate study nor guarantees future consideration for study at MIT. ACCESS was made possible through the generous support of Dow Chemical Corporation. For more information visit or email

Please forward and post this linked announcement and poster to your colleagues and students:

Grad School Preview Program for Underrepre​sented Minorities at UW-Madison Chemistry Department

The UW-Madison Chemistry Department will again be running its preview program to give students (mostly minority/disadvantaged) an opportunity to visit Madison and the Department in September 2014, before applications for grad school are due.  We hope to attract 20-25 college seniors to the CHOPs (CHemistry OPportunities) program, which will be held September 11-13 in Madison.  More information and a link to the application is available at

We would like to introduce UW-Madison Chemistry to students who may not consider Madison as a first choice for graduate work.  We would be very grateful if you could forward this email to your rising seniors who may be considering starting graduate work in Chemistry in Fall 2015.

The success of our first several programs has persuaded us that this will be an annual event, so if you keep track of Preview programs, we would appreciate you adding UW-Madison Chemistry to your list.
