Purpose: The American Chemical Society’s Division of Organic Chemistry is once again sponsoring an award program called the Undergraduate Award in Organic Chemistry, which is intended to recognize senior students who display a significant aptitude for organic chemistry and to encourage further interest in the field. Chemistry departments are invited to 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.
There are two application routes:
- United States institutions who would like to receive a paper certificate and award letter by US Mail are required to complete the US UGA Application form by March 15th, 2021
- All international institutions and those United States institutions who wish to process/print their own award materials are required to complete the UGA Form – Digital Delivery by June 15th, 2021. New for 2021: within 24 hours of submitting the form you will receive PDF versions of the completed certificate and award letter for distribution to the awardee.
Please note that only one student per institution can be nominated per academic year. For more info see: https://organicdivision.org/uga
