The ACS Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) and the CIBA Foundation are proud to introduce the CIBA/YCC Young Scientist Travel Award. The program provides funding for young and early-career chemists to travel to and participate in an ACS national or regional meeting. Through this program, the YCC and the CIBA Foundation continue to support development of younger chemists in the chemical sciences. The award is intended for young scientists (under 35) who have post-doctoral appointments OR are within the first seven (7) years of their professional career. CIBA/YCC Young Scientist Travel Awards are awarded twice each year but the number of awards granted yearly will vary subject to available funding. Each award will equal $500.
Awards are issued twice a year, and are made on the basis of scientific merit and financial need. Applications for the Fall CIBA/YCC Travel Award will be accepted between September 1st and October 31st.
