The Organic Division congratulates the 180 Inaugural Organic Division Undergraduate Awardees. Each awardee has been sent a certificate (personally signed by the Organic Division Chair, Professor Lawrence T. Scott) and a letter detailing how they can obtain free membership in the division.
The division has decided to sponsor this new 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.
The list of the 2013 Organic Division Undergraduate Awardees is available. For more details on the program see the Organic Division Undergraduate Award.
