On November 23, 2021, the American Chemical Society (ACS) Green Chemistry Institute (GCI) announced that it is accepting applications for the Nina McClelland Memorial Award for postdoctoral chemists engaged in green chemistry research. Annually, two awardees will receive a $2,000 sponsorship to participate in and present their research at the annual ACS Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference (GC&E).
The 2022 GC&E will be held in Reston, Virginia, from June 6 to June 8, 2022. Both U.S. and international postdoctoral scholars are eligible to apply for this opportunity. For purposes of this award, ACS GCI characterizes green and sustainable chemistry innovation activities as:
