ACS Scholars Award
ACS Scholars

The ACS Scholars program was established in 1995 to provide scholarships to college students from historically under-represented minority groups. “The goal is to have the students enter the chemical sciences, and to change the face of a field that historically has been dominated by white males,” said Mr. Robert Hughes, manager of the ACS Scholars program since 1998.
Each year the program receives approximately 600 scholarship applications, from which 100-120 scholarships are awarded. The 20 members of the selection committee award the scholarships based solely on academic merit, with awards ranging from $1,000-$5,000 per year. Students, who are selected either during their senior year of high school or during college, major in a chemistry-related field – for example, chemistry, chemical engineering or biochemistry.
