Application: Conference and Meeting Support for Student Members

In order to promote student participation in professional societies’ meetings, the ACS WI Local Section will support virtual meeting attendance by ACS undergraduate and graduate student members who are also ACS WI LS affiliate members. All current undergraduate and graduate members of the ACS and ACS WI Local Section are eligible for this offer. Students must be majoring/completing degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry or other chemistry-focused discipline to be eligible. Each student member may apply for support of participation in up to two meetings. There will be two levels of support:

  • If you attend a conference or workshop and present an oral presentation or poster, the ACS WI Local Section will cover 100% of your meeting/workshop registration fee up to $200.
  • If you attend a conference or workshop without presenting an oral presentation or poster, the ACS WI Local Section will cover 50% of your meeting/workshop registration fee up to $100.

If approved, you will receive an email from the ACS WI Local Section within 2 weeks of your submission.

After completing this form, please send the Local Section Treasurer a copy of your registration receipt for reimbursement.
