Up to three scholarships valued at $1,000 each will be presented at the 242nd ACS National Meeting in Denver, CO, August 28 – September 1, 2011. Applicants must be enrolled at a certified college or university, and they will present a poster during the Welcoming Reception of the division on Sunday evening at the National Meeting.
