Fellowships for graduate students in analytical chemistry are sponsored by various companies and organizations and are awarded through the DAC. The purposes of these fellowships are to encourage basic lected”>research in the field of analytical chemistry, to promote the growth of analytical chemistry in academic institutions and industry, and to provide recognition of future leaders in the field of analytical chemistry.
Both nine-month and summer fellowships are available. Most applicants apply for both awards unless mitigating circumstances (previous summer commitments, impending completion of degree requirements, etc.) exist.
Nine-month fellowships provide for nine months of graduate study and research in analytical chemistry at any ACS accredited institution of the appointee’s choice. The fellowship may not be accepted concurrently with any other external fellowship. Because the purpose of the fellowship is to provide opportunity for research, the holder will not engage in outside work for added compensation during the period of the fellowship. It is expected that the fellow will be engaged in full-time research for the duration of the fellowship and be in residence at the home institution (except when performing collaborative experiments which are part of the funded project).
