 The American Chemical Society (ACS) Scholars Program is now accepting applications from African-American, Hispanic/Latino and American Indian students who are pursuing or intend to pursue degrees in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, chemical technology or related majors.

 Renewable awards of up to $5,000 per year are given to qualified high school seniors, community college students and college freshmen, sophomores or juniors.

 Applications will be accepted through March 1, 2010, for the 2010-2011 school year. Additional information and an online application form can be found on the ACS Scholars Program website (www.acs.org/scholars), by calling 1-800-227-5558, extension 6250, or by emailing scholars@acs.org.

 ACS established the Scholars program in 1995 to attract underrepresented minorities to the chemical sciences and to build awareness of the value and rewards associated with careers in chemistry. In addition to financial support, the program provides mentoring and research and networking opportunities that help students acquire the skills and credentials needed for a successful career. For the 2010-2011 academic year, the Society expects to award approximately $1 million to both new and continuing Scholars.
