Since 1995, more than 3,000 students have participated in the ACS Scholars Program, which awards renewable scholarships to undergraduates from underrepresented minority backgrounds who are majoring in chemistry-related fields. Profiles of some of the alumni are now featured on a new ACS Scholars website initiated by ACS President Peter Dorhout, who is a strong supporter of the scholarship program.

According to the ACS Scholars website, 80% of ACS Scholars earn bachelor’s degrees in the chemical sciences. More than 50% of ACS Scholar alumni choose to pursue advanced degrees. In fact, more than 280 alumni have earned a Ph.D., and more than 35 alumni have joined university faculty.

Applications are being accepted until March 1 for the next class of ACS Scholars. The application form is available on the ACS Scholars website at www.acs.org/scholarsalumni.
