The Organic Division congratulates the 336 Organic Division Undergraduate Awardees for 2017. Each awardee received letter of recognition from the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry and an award certificate signed by the division chair. Awardees who are members of the ACS will also receive membership to the Division of Organic Chemistry; those who are not will receive Affiliate status.
The Division sponsors this award program to recognize senior students who display a significant aptitude for organic chemistry and to encourage further interest in the field. To receive the award, chemistry departments select a top graduating senior student majoring in either chemistry or biochemistry who has demonstrated excellence in organic chemistry based on a combination of research experience, coursework and a desire to pursue a career in chemistry.
