The ACS Office of Diversity Programs is soliciting nominations for the new ACS Award Recognizing Underrepresented Minorities in Chemistry for Excellence in Research & Development. The award is supported by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Nominations should consist of a brief description explaining why the nominee should be considered for the award, specifically identifying the contribution to chemical research and its significance to the chemical enterprise; a list of publications or other documentation demonstrating the impact of the research; a biographical sketch of the nominee; and three letters of support from scientific colleagues familiar with the nominee’s work.

The recipient will receive a cash award of $2,000 plus support for travel to an ACS meeting where he or she will receive the award and give a presentation. For more information, or to submit a nomination packet, e-mail Victoria Fuentes at v_fuen tes@acs.org. The deadline for nominations is June 15.
